SpaceX To Land at Sea after Launching Jason-31 min read

SpaceX will attempt to land the first stage of its next Falcon 9 launch at sea.

The company confirmed a report Thursday that the first stage of the Falcon 9 launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base Jan. 17 on the Jason-3 mission will attempt to land on a ship in the Pacific Ocean.

The company successfully landed the Falcon 9 first stage from its last launch from Cape Canaveral last month, but two previous attempts to land the stage on ships in the Atlantic failed.
