UP CLOSE PAD VIDEO – SpaceX Falcon 9 Historic Reflight Of Booster Carrying SES-10


Here are video clips from cameras placed next to the launch pad at the KSC Launch Complex 39-A (LC-39A). They recorded the historic first launch of an unmanned orbital class booster. The Falcon 9 on its first reflight successfully deployed the SES-10 commercial communications satellite. After launch the reusable first stage flew itself back to Earth and landed on the ASDS droneship Of Course I Still Love You in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida.
