Falcon 9 B1059.1, first time back

On Thursday December 5, 2019 at 12:29 p.m. SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket B1059.1 for the CRS-19 (19th Cargo Resupply Services) mission with the Dragon cargo spacecraft. The booster’s first flight was also its fist successful landing on to the drone ship, Of Course I Still Love You.

The Tug Boat HAWK hauled, Of Course I Still Love You into port with a freshly sooty booster. SpaceX rockets are proven to be flight reusable. So, we can expect to see more launches and landings from this booster in their fleet.
