The unmanned SpaceX rocket has been launched from Florida to put the JCSAT 14 communications satellite into orbit for Tokyo-based SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation. It made a successful return trip, landing on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean.
This is the second successful touchdown in a row on a floating platform, after the last one in April. There were previously four failed attempts. SpaceX also made a successful landing on a ground-based pad in December.
Before blastoff, Elon Musk’s company downplayed the expectations of a successful landing.
