  • SpaceX will Relaunch its Rocket in September or October

Elon Musk’s SpaceX will launch its its first reusable rocket in September or October of this year.

SpaceX is looking forward to the times ahead. Elon Musk, the owner of the space agency, announced on his Twitter account that the Falcon 9 that set the Thaicom 8 communications satellite into orbit around the earth is back on its base once again.

He also made it plain that the next trip would be in the fall season. The months planned for the relaunch effort would be September or October. That would indeed be a suitable time to send the payload up again into the empyrean heights. 

What remains unclear is what would be sent into orbit the next time around. The clientele does exist. One such example is the Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES.

It has expressed its wish to have one of its products launched by SpaceX. SES wants to be the first company to launch one its satellites on top of a Falcon 9, according to LATimes.

Luxembourg wants to enter the space race. It is among the top ten space leader nations in the world. SpaceX meanwhile is adept at its game of space exploration. This is clear from Elon Musk’s tweets which he regularly sends into cyberspace. Anything is possible in cyberspace, as the saying goes.

Elon’s tweet said that the fourth rocket had arrived in its hangar. He also wrote that the first reflight would take place in September or October.

Elon Musk is a genius in his own right. He is a self-made man who believes in polishing his personality and grooming himself. As the CEO of Tesla and head of SpaceX, he bears the brunt of the burden for both companies. Yet he manages to fulfill his duties with great alacrity. The relaunch planned for the fall season will hopefully go well.
