The launch and subsequent successful landing of the Falcon 9 marked the first time when such an event occurred in California.

The mission, mainly to gather soil moisture information, consists of a constellation of two identical satellites, SAOCOM 1A and 1B, both of which carry an L-Band SAR polarimetric instrument.

This was for the very first time; the company has landed its first stage booster back rocket at the California launch site. The Falcon 9 rocket has put the satellite which weighs about 3,000 Kilogram into space.

Earlier it was reported that the company SpaceX has made the launch, moving into space, the Argentinean satellite.

The sight of the Falcon in the sky was even more spectacular thanks to the halo of light that surrounded the rocket during ascent and booster separation.

Currently, they are undergoing the final evolution as the vehicle will be carrying the tourist to the Moon shortly. The launch site was located on the coast northwest of Los Angeles. The company is doing so to decrease the cost of the launches which is done by reusing the used rockets and allowing them to fly again in the new missions.

According to a Facebook post by the Air Force's 30th Space Wing at Vandenberg, "local residents" can expect to see something of the rocket itself as it returns to the base, while people as far as Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties may hear thunderclap-like sonic booms, depending on the weather.

Responsible for this show was the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which marked a new milestone by becoming the company's first to take off and land in the territory of the west coast of the United States.
