  • Hi-res panorama of SpaceX's first Block V Falcon 9 standing on SLC-4 East at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

  • A wicked view of the Falcon 9 nearing the supersonic regime of flight, creating condensation which instantly freezes and luminesces in the rocket's brighter-than-the-sun exhaust.

  • The 2nd Block V iteration of the Falcon 9 rocket (first from SLC-40) clearing the tower.

  • Falcon 9 ascending above a palm tree located on SLC-40, wreathed in condensation from super-chilled LOX (liquid oxygen) and RP-1 (rocket propellant - 1)in its fuel tanks.

Recent Photos

  • IXPE will take about a month to commission on-orbit and has a planned usable life of 2 years after that, but with no on-board consumables to maintain itself it is very likely to live on well past that timeframe.

  • SpaceX and NASA are targeting Thursday, December 9th at 1:00 a.m. ET for the launch of the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) mission.

  • IXPE will be placed in an equatorial, 540 x 540 kilometer, low Earth orbit after its ascent to space aboard Falcon 9.

  • IXPE will be SpaceX's fifth launch for NASA's Launch Services Program, which curates NASA's science and robotic missions with rides to space via commercial launch vehicles.

  • Close-up of the Falcon 9 payload fairing artwork for IXPE.
