Later, her reusable first stage successfully landed on the floating platform Of Course I Still Love You (Of course, I still love you).
On Thursday, February 4, the company planned to launch two Falcon 9 rockets. The second was supposed to be launched four hours later from the launch complex at the Kennedy Space Center, but the launch was postponed to 5:14 (13:14 Moscow time) on February 5 to carry out additional checks.
Earlier, on January 23, SpaceX launched a Falcon launch vehicle with 143 satellites, breaking the world record for the most satellites launched by a single rocket.
The previous record was recorded in 2017, when the Indian Space Agency was able to successfully launch a rocket with 104 satellites.
