SpaceX pioneered landing and reuse Commercial rockets that can ship an orbit space, but the company has never used the same rocket period more than twice. That's ready to change on Wednesday.

Elon Musk's vision of cheaper, faster to launch the orbit is raised to a higher level when one of Falcon Block 5's 5 rockets disappears from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in the morning. The Block 5 version of Workhor workhorse rocket was designed to be reused for up to 10 times or more without refurbishment. Also, the specific supplement used this week was launched in May (the first block launch) and then again in August.

The payload bay on top of Falcon 9 will be filled up – it has loaded with 64 small satellites from 34 different organizations that represent 17 nations. Spaceflight Industries bought all over the Falcon 9 for a ride sharing mission named at SSO-A SmallSat Express, which says the company will be the largest single-run runner-up mission in the US so far.
