SpaceX successfully launched the Euclid space telescope into orbit
SpaceX’s Falcon 9 just did it like never before!!!
In a momentous event in the field of astrophysics, SpaceX successfully launched the Euclid space telescope into orbit to map the “dark universe” like never before.
And of course, the European spacecraft launched from a U.S. broomstick, SpaceX’s Falcon 9, which happens to be the best rocket in the world right now!
Let’s go over the minute details of this extraordinary launch in today’s episode of Great SpaceX!
Everything began at 11:12 a.m. EDT Saturday when a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket roared to life at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
After a lightning-fast round of computer checks, the rocket was released to climb away atop 1.7 million pounds of thrust, putting on a spectacular weekend sky show for area residents and tourists.
Forty-one minutes later, after two firings of the rocket’s second stage engine, Euclid was released to fly on its own.
The Falcon 9’s first stage, as usual for SpaceX, flew itself to landing on an off-shore droneship.
