SpaceX completed the secondary mission of landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket at Landing Zone 4, which was previously called SLC-4W, at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Taking off at about 19:21 local time (02:21 GMT), the first stage of the rocket returned safely to the air base about eight minutes later.

SpaceX's seventeenth launch in 2018 was a success, also signifying the first land landing on the United States' west coast.

His comments were made during a meeting of the Central Committee of the ruling al-Baath Arab Socialist Party. He added that the opposition forces will keep their forward bases and light and medium weapons in place.

The rocket, built by Elon Musk's SpaceX, was carrying the satellite SAOCOM 1A.

Booms from the Falcon 9 booster's re-entry into the atmosphere were predicted to shake the Pacific Coast as far southeast as Ventura County, but officials said the noise pattern can not be accurately predicted given varying upper-atmospheric weather patterns.

The satellite is the first of two that will be used for emergency management and for land monitoring. Most likely this is related to the SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket which launched around 7:30 p.m.

Will Many Amazon Workers Not Receive Minimum Wage Increases?
The company announced Tuesday that it will raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour for all USA employees. Economists said the move could put pressure on other large employers to raise wages.

The mission's main objective is to gather soil moisture information.

The SAOCOM 1 satellite is operated by Argentina's space agency, the National Commission on Space Activities, and will work in tandem with another satellite primarily to gather soil moisture information. But a successful landing would mean the company would no longer have to rely only on its drone ship for post-launch landings, according to Wired.

SAOCOM 1B is planned to launch next year.

The launch also looked just as stunning in video.
