The SpaceX company returned to the stage space with the successful launch
2016-the year was relatively good for SpaceX, the company Elon musk came to the creation of the rocket reusable, everything seems to go according to plan.
Of course sometimes there are situations not too good as in autumn 2016 Falcon 9 rocket exploded on the launch pad during pre-testing at Cape Canaveral. This disaster no one stopped, but on the contrary, the company has learned a positive lesson and worked on options for the future, so it`s not like that it does not recur.
The company conducted a quick investigation and found that liquid oxygen seeped out of the tanks, which caused friction, ignition and hence an explosion.
So that the rocket exploded by the fact that structurally it no where not good, but because of the mechanics of that that there is not so screwed. To find the reason it was hard but it well found and now ready for safe launch of the upgraded rocket. Positive news spread through all the channels of radio and television, from Vandenberg air force base today launched the Falcon 9 rocket with the satellite Iridium Next on Board. In addition, the first stage of the rocket returned home with a parachute and landed very well, it is a success, the apparent success of the private space program.
SpaceX was ready to launch at the end of last year, but the weather was terrible the whole month, it was raining heavily and was a strong cross wind, the weather conditions did not give 100% guarantee of a successful start-up.
SpaceX successfully launched a satellite, and this means that the company have confidence and then we can talk about future funding for new programs. The company is now confident that the launches of their missiles will be much cheaper than other other transport facilities on orbit.
NASA will continue to work with private space companies, it is beneficial and useful from the point of view of control of funding and from the point of view of innovative ideas.
