‘This Won’t be Subtle’: SpaceX West Coast Launch to Create Large Sonic Boom

Used SpaceX Rocket to Launch Satellite Try Historic Landing Tonight Watch Live

The company, led by Elon Musk, sells launches on used Falcon 9 first-stage boosters at a discount to the $62 million price of a launch on a new Falcon 9 rocket.

Two minutes later, the second stage engine shut down as planned and two-and-a-half minutes after that, the SAOCOM 1A satellite was released into the planned polar orbit.

On Sunday, October 7 at 7:21 p.m. PDT, SpaceX successfully launched the SAOCOM 1A satellite from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. "What you're looking at is the first launch and landing of the @SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on the West Coast". Stream launch was conducted on YouTube channel SpaceX, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

"Vandenberg, LZ-4, the Falcon has landed", a member of SpaceX's launch team reported.

Many onlookers were delightfully surprised, who were not aware of the launch, to see the unusual light in the night sky. The company views ground-based rocket landings as better for expediting reuse, since drone ship landings require time to return to port.


Residents across the Mother Lode had a clear view of the first ever SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch from the West Coast.

SpaceX has always been trying to achieve ground landings on its Vandenberg facilities, which is named Space Launch Complex 4 (SLC-4 for short). The mission's main objective is to collect soil moisture information. It will also-in partnership with the Italian COSMO-SkyMed X-Band SAR constellation-assist with rapid response during natural disasters.

"SAOCOM" is short for "Satélite Argentino de Observación Con Microondas", which is Spanish for "Argentine Microwave-Observation Satellite".

But unofficially, it just looked really darn cool.
