Published this week This week shows new videos and images on Twitter as Elon Musk's SpaceX cladding the company's Falcon Heavy rocket takes a dramatic leap back into the stratosphere. RELATIONSHIP: SPACEX LAUNCHES FALCON HEAVY ROCKET SUCCESSFUL, RESTORING THE CENTRUM CORE
The disguise was brought to the stratosphere on June 25, 2019 . Both videos were tweeted, one by Elon Musk and one by SpaceX.
Some Information on STP-2 and the Fairing
The fairing is an aerodynamic composite shell that protects satellites when they are thrown into space. In the stratosphere, rockets are liberated from these outer shells, the disguises that ultimately fall back to earth.
Most of the panels are then thrown away. Elon Musk and SpaceX have tried to regain the components of the panels in order to reuse them.

̵1; SpaceX (@SpaceX) July 3, 2019  Last year, Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, stated that a disguise was typically about costs $ 6 million .
That's a good deal of money if Musk finds a way to reuse disguises.
In this sense, Musk's Disguise Salvage Boat, renamed "Ms. Tree", previously known as "Mr. Steven," now has a huge net with the goal of catching the fairing shell.
Landing in a net allows reuse of the fairing.
The net would allow the reuse of the fairing as less salt water would penetrate the fairing, which typically requires a higher number of repairs.
wife. Tree has successfully trapped one half of the panel in their network. SpaceX now wants to use the panel again.

The company's panels were outfitted with avionics, engines, and parachutes. which facilitate steering to allow a softer landing.
SpaceX plans to capture both halves of the disguise in the shipping network and reuse them for other launches in the future.
Watch the videos to see the return of disguise to the stratosphere.
