Canaveral's OOG handling sky-rockets

June 30 - SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket booster has returned to Port Canaveral, USA on board the drone ship, Of Course I Still Love You, after its successful launch and landing on June 23.

The 229 ft (69.8 m) tall rocket reached an altitude of 44 miles (70.8 km) before separating from an 8,150 lbs (3.7-tonne) BulgariaSat 1 satellite.

Once the Falcon 9 rocket booster has been offloaded from the drone ship, it will be transported to SpaceX's rocket refurbishment facility, 700 yards (0.64 km) away.

According to Port Canaveral, SpaceX is planning to launch its third Flacon 9 rocket on July 2.

The Port of Canaveral also welcomed BigLift Shipping's Happy Dynamic to the port, marking the first heavy lift vessel to call at GT USA's Canaveral Cargo Terminal.

Happy Dynamic transported and discharged oversized and overweight cargo, which originated from China, at the terminal.

Joe Cruise, commercial manager at GT USA, marked the vessel call by presenting a commemorative plaque to Captain J.J.J de Boer (pictured below).
