SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch: SAOCOM 1A Mission


Liftoff is at the 17 minute mark.
The October 7, 2018 Falcon 9 rocket Block 5 launch was of a synthetic aperture radar remote sensing satellite, SAOCOM 1A, for Argentina’s space agency Comision Nacional de Actividades Espaciales (CONAE) from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB).

SpaceX landed a Falcon 9 rocket back at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California for the first time. While the company’s launches and landings on the East Coast have become almost routine, this is the first time it attempted a landing at its Landing Zone 4 at VAFB.
