SpaceX landed Falcon 9 to the same drone ship again

SpaceX wrote a history by sending a rocket to the space, and then landing the rocket to a floating drone ship. Well, they sent the Falcon 9 to the space and again landed it on the same drone ship.

This was done in order to place Japanese Communication Satellite, JCSAT-14, at an altitude of 22.300 miles. That is really far compared to ISS’s altitudeĀ at 250 miles. After going there, and successfully doing the mission, SpaceX returned the rocket to the world and landed it again.

This is another huge step in the road of reusable rockets.
