SpaceX Aims To Land Falcon 9 Rocket At Cape Canaveral Tonight

This attempts follows the failure in Juneآ—let’s hope there are no explosions this time.

If the launch does go off as planned, after the rumble from the rocket’s climb subsides, the flight could be punctuated by a sonic boom signaling the Falcon 9 booster's return from space. Observers may then see the orange glow of an engine firing in darkness to slow the booster’s descent toward concrete pads at SpaceX’s "Landing Complex 1" at Cape Canaveral.
