SpaceX Falcon 9 Sentinel-6 Mission | Rocket Lab recovers booster in major step toward Reusability

The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is named after Michael Freilich, the former head of NASA’s Earth science division who died of cancer in August. NASA and ESA named the satellite after Freilich in January before his death. Freilich’s son Daniel and daughter Sarah with Freilich’s baby granddaughter Rosie viewed the launch on site. On 21st November, Saturday, SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched this advanced ocean mapping Freilich satellite into orbit for National Aeronautics & Space Administration and the European Space Agency from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

  1. Comment to Narrator: It's not the 'Ma-high' Peninsular from where Rocket Lab launches in New Zealand, it's the 'Ma-hee-a' Peninsular. If you are going to continue commenting on things New Zealand, you are going to have to start learning the language (Te Reo). Please get it right next time!

  2. Recovery and reuse is not going to lower Rocket Lab's costs. The rocket is too small for that. Recovery and refurbishment essentially cost as much as a new rocket. What it will do is allow them to significantly increase their flight cadence, because they won't have to build a new rocket every time. Peter Beck has been very clear about this in his public statements.

  3. Very cool. Last year my editor died, I launch him in a rocket, 4 secs. after liftoff he was 3 miles away going out of site at mock 1. I don't know how many laws I broke but there was no one around to stop me.

  4. Congratulations to New Zealand and the US on their progress with rocket lab!!! Diverse and risky innovation is what will keep the free world ahead of China and prevent them from continuing to export their tyranny! ❤️

  5. The question I have is whether we will ever find out if the ocean water ever drops, or will the powers to be ever admit to it.

  6. Amazing video. Also Could I talk to you about my Aerospace company. I think It might add something that is a little more random but interesting nonetheless.

  7. That was the first launch I've ever gone to yesterday. completely did not expect the sonic boom as soon as the booster returned and landed.

  8. How can u reuse it after in salt water ? Looks like a lot of refurbishment to me. Why not land it on the ground spacex does it u can too. Work on it.

  9. Since sea levels are rising due to climate change. And NASA and SpaceX are looking for water in the Moon or Mars, it would be a good idea to transfer water over to those places. The only consern is that sea levels rise because of warming, and water cools the Earth, so would not be wise to take water out, so we need to figure something out to furder cool our planet first. Crazy ideas running out

  10. Space X are killing it at the moment. Can't wait to see Starship launch for the first time, that thing is going to be crazy.

  11. I always enjoy your information rich and diverse presentations. I particularly like your crisp, clear speaking voice — best delivered narrative of all the rocket-jockeys out there. Keep 'em coming!
