SpaceX					SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Block 5 ready for first Return-To-Launch-Site booster landing

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.

In a move that could cut its costs to launch space hardware even further, SpaceX landed a first-stage booster on a pad at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base on Sunday night.

For the first time ever, after launching a satellite into the space SpaceX managed to end the show with a ideal landing of its rocket on the Californian soil. Elon Musk's SpaceX achieved another milestone too i.e.by launching the first-ever mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base and successfully performing a landing on the west coast of the United States for the first time.

SpaceX designs, manufactures, and launched advanced rockets and spacecrafts.

Meanwhile a huge display of bright green Northern Lights appeared in the skies over Rovaniemi, in the Arctic Circle, on Sunday (October 7) evening. It, too, found success in landing at a new site north of Los Angeles. The rocket blasted off from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at the air force base at 7.21 pm local time.




SAOCOM 1A is operated by Argentina's Space Agency, the National Commission on Space Activities (CONAE).

People across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, were treated to a stunning light show moving across the darkened horizon on Sunday night.

The SAOCOM 1 mission aims to study soil moisture using synthetic-aperture radar readings from two identical satellites in low Earth orbit, SAOCOM 1A and 1B. The mission's main goal is to collect soil moisture information.

But unofficially, it just looked really darn cool. Its acronym is short for Satelite Argentino de Observacion Con Microondas.
