For the first time ever, after launching a satellite into the space SpaceX managed to end the show with a flawless landing of its rocket on the Californian soil.

About three minutes after launch, the rocket detached from the "second stage", including the satellite, stopped its forward momentum, and began to fall back toward the earth, according to SpaceX.

Viewers took to social media to speculate on the rocket, which was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, which is about 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The rocket boosted an Argentine environmental satellite into orbit.

The Falcon 9 booster stage landed safely only 8 minutes after taking off, lighting up the sky in a dazzling flurry that captured the attention of onlookers on the ground. The satellite carries an active instrument consisting of a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), which works in the microwave range of the electromagnetic spectrum, particularly the L-band.

Not yet officially on the schedule, SpaceX's next Vandenberg launch is expected to be Spaceflight Industries' SSO-A rideshare mission, carrying around 70 individual satellites of varying masses. This mission has the main aim to gather soil moisture information.
