On July 24,Falcon Heavy into the room. At the top of Heavy, within the payload, 24 satellites were transported to orbit to accommodate space. But some parts of Heavy were destined to return to Earth, including the protective payload that shielded the satellites from the extreme forces of a rocket launch. For the first time, the SpaceX captured the trap before it fell into the Atlantic Ocean ̵
The SpaceX twitter account shared the video below on Tuesday night, causing the rocket to chase a fairing eye's return to earth. Like the semicircular metal zipper through the Earth's atmosphere, the particles turn on so that the screen becomes light brown. How it looks when you return from space:
] Capturing fairing is a particularly important milestone for SpaceX. Fairing acts as a nose cone for the rocket and protects the load being launched off-plane. Once the rocket has passed through the Earth's atmosphere, the party gets jettisoned and comes back to Earth. It's a short life for fairing, but it's expensive.
Estimates suggest each challenge cost about $ 6 million, which means restoring them is important in reducing spaceflight costs to SpaceX. Instead of producing a new fairing every time, it is better to just recycle them – but until the latest launch, it has been difficult to catch the falling metal hunk when it comes down to the sea.
But during the launch on June 24, SpaceX did it. Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO, shared a view of the catch at the company's fast boat, known as Ms Tree, on Twitter Tuesday.
The next step to the exhibition? Go back to the room, of course. Here it hopes it can give equally impressive vision on its next flight.
