- Family: Falcon
- Length: 70 m
- Diameter: 3.65 m
- Launch Mass: 549 T
- Low Earth Orbit Capacity: 22800 kg
The Falcon 9 Block 5 was manufactured by SpaceX with the first launch on 2018-05-11. Falcon 9 Block 5 has 171 successful launches and 0 failed launches with a total of 171 launches. Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. The Block 5 variant is the fifth major interval aimed at improving upon the ability for rapid reusability.
The Falcon 9 first stage has successfully landed on autonomous droneship A Shortfall of Gravitas.
A Shortfall of Gravitas – ASOG
The fourth ASDS barge, A Shortfall of Gravitas (ASOG) is currently used to recover Falcon 9 and Heavy boosters in the Altantic Ocean.
Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship – ASDS
An autonomous spaceport drone ship (ASDS) is an ocean-going vessel derived from a deck barge, outfitted with station-keeping engines and a large landing platform. Construction of such ships was commissioned by aerospace company SpaceX to allow for recovery of rocket first-stages at sea for high-velocity missions which do not carry enough fuel to return to the launch site after lofting spacecraft onto an orbital trajectory.

All countries are therefore one!.
I think Vlad would beg to differ with you.
please verify your launch time, it looks like the launch time is for 7:17am on Monday.
The time has been updated.
Will this be visible from NE Florida?
If you click on the link under the mission section you can see the trajectory is south. You may be able to see it but probably not for long.
8:45 am or 9:06 am??
The launch is scheduled for 8:45 AM right now. Check back for updates.
Will a link be provide so we can watch Online like previous launches? These are much better than the limited exposure/ information provided on the “News” stations. Everyone is doing a great job to move us Forward!
Yes, the link will be posted when it is available.
Another great launch and show by our friends at SpaceX. Always good to see the landing on the drone ship and amazing technology folks, thanks again SpaceX for the telecast of these launches its always appreciated by us Aussies down under. P.S Not bad for an American “broomstick” rocket launch… Read more »
Space X I cannot wait to see the heavy booster catch landing. Good luck and God bless.
