Elon Musk’s agency SpaceX is to land three rockets at one and the same time on their pads on Florida’s Space Coast.

The second and the third landing zones will be provided for SpaceX rockets returning to earth from the stratosphere. The site is Florida’s Space Coast. Elon Musk’s company is looking for open access to two novel sites.

As for the ultimate goal, it is the landing of three rockets at the same time at this site. The touchdown of all three will occur within minutes of each other. 

Falcon Heavy rockets will fly later on in 2016. The goal is the recovery of all three of the rockets. This capacity of landing three rockets simultaneously is of chief importance.

SpaceX is making preparations to send its Falcon Heavy rocket into the depths of the final frontier later on this year. Also the price tag of the launch efforts will be brought way down. It will be an economical deal.

The reusable Falcon 9 rockets were the original spacecraft used for this express purpose. However, the Falcon Heavy rockets will be be launched in the manner of a three stage process, according to The Orlando Sentinel

The return of a recent Falcon 9 rocket led to a huge sonic boom. It went on for approximately 12 minutes. All of Orlando reverberated with this noise. After it was launched, the rocket looked like a huge conflagration in the night sky.

It carried 5000 pounds of odds and ends of equipment. Some minutes into its launch, the rocket slowed down thanks to the thrusters which acted promptly.

The landing zone was all prepared for the rockets to come down to earth. With the passage of time, such landings will become standard procedure. It is just a matter of further future progress. 

The billionaire owner of SpaceX, Elon Musk was overjoyed at the successful launch and landing of the rockets. He was pretty excited about the whole thing. It showed the health and fitness of his organization.

The sonic booms raised quite a ruckus in the region. There were several 911 calls made by people not used to similar sounds from the Space Shuttle era.

SpaceX is all set to revolutionize space travel. The biggest payoff is that these space journeys are very cheap and don’t require much in the way of special materials.
