Up and Down for National Security


A SpaceX Falcon 9 first stage booster makes a succesful landing at Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station after sending a classified satellite (NROL-76) into orbit for the National Reconnaissance Office. Liftoff was at 7:15 a.m. on 1 May 2017 from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A with the landing happening a little over eight minutes later.
