The launch, which took place at 8:51 a.m. EST (1351 GMT) from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, was visible for miles around and provided stunning views of the rocket’s ascent against the backdrop of a beautiful sunrise sky.
SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket carrying an advanced GPS satellite for the U.S Space Force on Wednesday morning — and it made quite an impression with its fiery trail across the sky as it soared into space! The mission marked SpaceX’s first national security launch since winning certification to compete for such launches back in 2015, according to SpaceNews reports
The satellite is part of a new generation of GPS satellites that will provide more accurate navigation signals than ever before — up to 10 times better accuracy than current systems can offer — thanks to improved atomic clocks onboard each spacecraft that keep time much more precisely than their predecessors did.
For those lucky enough to witness this incredible sight firsthand, they were treated not only with awe-inspiring visuals but also with some delicious homefries courtesy of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk who tweeted out “Homefries included” shortly after liftoff! It looks like breakfast just got even better thanks Mr Musk!
