US Company Launch Satellite with Recycled Rocket for the First Time

The US company SpaceX successfully launched its rocket Falcon 9 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 18:27 on March 30 America Eastern Standard Time, sending EUTELSAT's SES-1 satellite to the Geostationary Earth Orbit. About 10 minutes after launch, the Falcon 9 core successfully returned and landed on an unmanned ship on the Atlantic Ocean.

The SpaceX's sending a commercial communication satellite into orbit with a "second-handed" rocket is the first time in Space History of human being and a big leap in its bid to promote reusable rockets and drive down costs of flights.
