Maritime Image of the Day: SpaceX’ Falcon 9 Booster Rocket’s Landing Gear

PortandTerminal.com, June 2, 2020

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – A few days ago SpaceX successfully sent its first manned mission to the International Space Stations. Back here on earth, we were also treated to the engineering wonder of watching the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket land upright on a floating platform in the Atlantic ocean.

Here it is again in case you missed it.

Today’s image, which was taken a year ago, helps to give some perspective of the immense size of the booster rocket. Here’s another photo of its landing gear extended.
