Until now, all landings of the company founded by Elon Musk had taken place on Florida's Cape Canaveral or offshore platforms. The Falcon 9 rocket has put the satellite which weighs about 3,000 Kilogram into space. SLC-4, which was originally the home of Originally Titan missiles, is essentially two launch sites in one.
