FROM historic Launch Pad 39A AT KSC


WATCH REPLAY: SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from Kennedy Space Center Sunday morning with all-around success with launch and landing of the rocket booster engine. 

BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA — SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from Kennedy Space Center Sunday morning with all-around success with launch and landing of the rocket booster engine.

The flight was conducted under the Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.

The historic Launch Pad 39A, which is the former Saturn V and space shuttle pad, and was the first SpaceX’s launch from the historic site.

SpaceX used the KSC launch pad because a fiery explosion destroyed a Falcon 9 rocket on the pad during a static test firing on Sept. 1, 2016 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Sation’s Space Launch Complex 40, which is still undergoing repairs.

On January 14, SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base, marking the company’s return-to-first after the Sept. 1 explosion.
