About half an hour later, the first stage booster was sent back to the base, the first time the company has landed this type of rocket on the West Coast. Once again, the light is from a SpaceX launch.

- The launch clock remained set to 7:21 p.m. for SpaceX's launch of a satellite into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base, and planned landing of the rocket booster 100 miles west of Los Angeles. The retro firings slowed the rocket down from supersonic speeds, setting off a sonic boom that could be heard in some areas (but not others).

"Vandenberg LZ-4, the Falcon has landed", a member of SpaceX's launch team reported.

[Teams] Tottenham vs Barcelona: Confirmed Line-Ups From Wembley
Barcelona ran out 4-2 winners in the end at Wembley but Spurs almost forced a famous comeback after clawing the game back to 3-2. Messi aimed for the same post he had hit twice earlier, and this time found the side netting.

The second satellite will be SAOCOM 1B. "This is fantastic news", SpaceX launch commentator Tom Praderio said.

The primary goal of the flight was to boost Argentina's SAOCOM 1A satellite into an orbit around Earth's poles, the first of two orbital radar stations capable of "seeing" through clouds and at night to measure soil moisture, a key indicator of crop yields, droughts and floods.

The satellite is the first of two that will be used for emergency management and for land monitoring. Between then and now, the company chalked up 10 more successful landings at the Air Force Station and another 18 on off-shore droneships.

Roach will be absent as he has flown back to attend a family issue and the lack of top-quality spinners is a cause for concern. Besides Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara also scored a good looking 86 in his own backyard but missed out on a hundred .

Land landings aren't threatened by storms like ocean landings are, and they also allow SpaceX to refurbish the boosters faster, as they don't need to be recovered from sea.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying an Argentinian satellite has blasted off from California. This time, however, the ship - nicknamed Mr. Steven - stayed in port, perhaps due to rough seas in the Pacific.
