SpaceX successfully launches rocket one day after failed attempt

"Since the standard terrestrial system was automatically suspended in T-1 minutes, it stood up today", the company released a tweet soon after launch.

Musk estimated 60 percent of the Falcon 9's marginal cost comes from the first stage, 20 percent from the second stage, 10 percent for the fairing, and 10 percent for the everything else associated with the launch.

Such activities are part of the company's efforts to develop fully and rapidly reusable rockets and spacecraft.

Musk has often said that this kind of reusability could eventually lead to a world in which those who want SpaceX to launch their wares to space will just need to pay for fuel.

The Block 5's upgrades take another step in this direction.

Return the first stage for up to ten launches without repairs after returning to Earth, as well as a resource to hundreds of competitions at carrying out of all necessary repairs.

The Block 5 is also more powerful than its predecessors, Musk said.

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller Have Broken Up
The pair have been through a lot together, including the terrorist bombing at Grande's Manchester , England, concert a year ago . The former couple, who have been dating for two years, have apparently gone their separate ways due to their busy schedules.

There are lots of improvements over the previous rockets, though many are small or highly technical in nature.

The changes, though they contribute directly to reuse and cost reductions, are also aimed at satisfying the requirements of NASA's commercial crew missions. The fight spent on this contract over a quarter of a million dollars.

"We intend to demonstrate two orbital launches of the same Falcon 9 vehicle within 24 hours no later than next year", Musk said May 10 during a call with reporters. "This rocket is really created to be - the intent is to be the most reliable rocket ever built".

Falcon 9 Block 5 successfully debuted earlier today, completing a nearly-flawless launch and landing.

The glitch forced the one-day delay in the launch, but Friday's mission went off without a hitch. You can watch the entire thing in SpaceX's video below.
