While many people dream of venturing into space, unfortunately it’s currently only a reality for a lucky few.

But if space-travel is on your bucket-list, SpaceX ’s latest video could be just the ticket.

Elon Musk’s space firm has released an incredible new rocket’s-eye view video from one of its Falcon 9 rockets.

The video was filmed during SpaceX’s recent SAOCOM-1B mission, during which an Argentinian satellite was launched into space.

SpaceX explained: “Sped up footage from an onboard camera during Falcon 9’s launch of the SAOCOM 1B mission – SpaceX’s first launch to a polar orbit from the East Coast.

“After launching from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Falcon 9’s first stage returned to land at Landing Zone 1.”

In the video, you’ll see the Falcon 9 rocket launching from the ground, before quickly rising up through the sky.

The rocket then slowly returns back to Earth, landing safely on the launch pad.

Falcon 9 is a reusable, two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX.

So far, SpaceX has completed 92 Falcon 9 launches, including 53 landings, and 38 reflown flights.

SpaceX explained: “Falcon 9 is the world’s first orbital class reusable rocket. Reusability allows SpaceX to refly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn drives down the cost of space access.”
