NASA's Exoplanet Hunt Telescope has been successfully deployed in Earth orbit by SpaceX. The gravity of the moon will help the telescope to get it into a wider orbit, from where the actual mission of TESS will begin.
Another good news for SpaceX is that the first stage of Falcon 9 has also landed safely on the surface of the drone ship. "Of course I still love you."
SpaceX marks its eighth launch this year, and the 24th time SpaceX has landed its first level, Falcon 9, as part of the rocket that accelerates toward space. The launch was from the Atlantic and the ship is boarded in the Pacific.
The landed rocket is being inspected and renewed, it is just a speculation that it will be reused in the ISS replenishment mission that SpaceX will host next June. However, this generation of Falcon 9 will be exhausted, for which Musk already has plans. SpaceX will launch its fifth generation Falcon 9s (Block 5), which is significantly more advanced and has two or three distinct reusability features.
Such an introduction is planned for next week. Now successfully deployed with TESS, now is the game on NASA to further adjust the orbit so that the telescope can get its required "moon boost".
