‘This Won’t be Subtle’: SpaceX West Coast Launch to Create Large Sonic Boom
09 October, 2018, 04:28
A SpaceXFalcon 9 rocket carried an Argentinian Earth-observation satellite into space Sunday and for the first time landed a first-stage booster back at its California launch site.
Air Force officials have issued a warning that residents in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties could potentially hear one or more sonic booms due to the launch.
If the mission goes according to plan, Sunday night will mark SpaceX's first landing of this sort on the West Coast. It was the 30th successful landing for SpaceX out of 62 total launches and the 12th on land.
It will be SpaceX's first time trying to land one of its reusable rockets on the West Coast.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched into orbit but not before lighting up the night sky and creating a spectacular show.

The 3,500-lb. (1,600 kilograms) SAOCOM-1A satellite was developed by Argentina's national space agency, which is known by its Spanish acronym CONAE. It carries a high-resolution instrument called a synthetic aperature radar that will be used for emergency management and land monitoring.
As the biggest antenna in space for a civil mission, its main goal is to gather soil moisture information.
SAOCOM 1B is planned to launch next year. The booster first saw action back in July, delivering 10 Iridium NEXT communications satellites into orbit. It will also-in partnership with the Italian COSMO-SkyMed X-Band SAR constellation-assist with rapid response during natural disasters. Its acronym is short for Satelite Argentino de Observacion Con Microondas.
