It was then when the Tesla Roadster reached space as the first car in the history of the world to leave this planet. But it was also then when the boosters of the two strap-on Falcon 9 rockets came back to Earth and landed in sync on their designated pads.
Since then, the Falcon Heavy has done this a couple of more times, this time for paying customers. The most recent of launches took place a year ago, when the the STP-2 mission took off carrying to space a DoD payload of satellites, and as usual people who like to capture rocket launches on camera were on sight near the pad.
Among them were the guys from Cosmic Perspective who have shown us over the years incredible images of space-faring hardware in action. At the one year anniversary of Falcon Heavy’s last launch, they released a new video showing once again how it all came to be.
The interesting part about this launch is that it took place at night, which means the images are even more spectacular. Especially the ones showing the two Falcon 9 boosters descending from the heavens and nicely set down on their designated pads.
You can see that from the 3:15 mark in the video below, but we suggest you watch it all for the full experience.
