Elon Musk captioned the video, “Aloha, welcome back from space.”
Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, posted an amazing video about a ship that recovers first rocket fairing for the venture. If a rocket launches with a certain amount of payload, it needs a fairing, mostly the nose cone of the rocket, Wired explains. When the rake enters the atmosphere of the Planet, however, the fight is extra weight and falls down to Earth.
Such fairings are not normally restored. They are expensive elements, however. According to Wired, it seems that the heavy Falcon rocket will cost around $6 million.
SpaceX is now able to retrieve one of its fairings with a large parachute to slow it down by using a jaw-dropping feat. According to Teslarati, hours after the successful launch of Starlink-10 on Tuesday, the Falcon 9 rocket fairing was recovered.
A video shared by Elon on Twitter shows the success of the catch. The video showed the rocket hocking at the gigantic net of a movable ship called Ms Tree, set to calming elevator music.
A crystal-clear video of the successful catch has collected a huge 4 million views on the microblogging platform. In fact, its clarity has prompted some to question its authenticity-asking whether the clip is real or computer-generated.
He also made comments on the choice of background music, writing: “Elevator music is underrated.”
A lot of people applauded the successful catch. Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma hailed SpaceX as the company that “changed the space industry forever” while sharing the clip.
