SpaceX sends 40 OneWeb satellites into space, makes a rocket landing

SpaceX launched a large batch of OneWeb Internet satellites into orbit Thursday evening (Dec. 8).

A Falcon 9 rocket carrying 40 OneWeb satellites was launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 5:27 p.m. EST (2227 GMT) Thursday and lifted into orbit during a dazzling sunset. Cameras on the ground captured stunning views of the Falcon 9 as its first stage separated, then returned to Earth for a precision landing on the SpaceX platform at the nearby Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
