They will attempt to return the 1st stage and gently land it in the Pacific ocean.


I'm extremely excited about this launch.

Good article about SpaceX and this launch with an interview of Elon Musk.

[link to www.spaceflightnow.com]


"One objective of Sunday's launch - a secondary goal, Musk says - is to recover the Falcon 9's cylindrical 11.8-foot-diameter first stage after its job is completed.

"We are going to try to land the first stage in the Pacific by initiating a re-entry burn just before re-entry," Musk said. "We would have two relights of the first stage, with the last one just of the center engine.""

There is a 50% chance that this rocket will become a giant fireball as is the case with all new rockets. Its going to end up in the Pacific ocean in a little over 1 hour. Hopefully it will be in one piece and a new age of spaceflight will begin with reusable rockets.

This is the first SpaceX launch that will use a payload fairing. Its big enough to hold a city bus.
