SpaceX has successfully launched the Falcon 9 rocket. The rocket has successfully landed on a drone ship and has completed the second stage with the successful deployment of the JCSAT-14 satellite in the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit.
The rocket is currently in the advanced stage of the deployment of the satellite and is expected to land safely.
SpaceX had recently successfully landed the Falcon 9 on a platform planted over the sea during a test.
The company was expected to launch the rocket on Thursday but decided to postpone it due to the unfavourable weather conditions.
