Welcome home B1048.3! After completing a successful launch of Nusantara Satu and landing on OCISLY in the most challenging conditions to date, B1048.3 has returned home.

Next step will be berthing at the SpaceX dock.

Booster 1048 after its third flight and landing compared with @w00ki33 photos from its first flight and landing. It’s a bit scorchy! Booster 1048.1 was the Iridium-7 mission (July 2018) and Booster 1048.3 is the recent PSN VI (Feb 2019). It launched Saocom 1-A in Oct. 2018 too.

Aerial views of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 B1048.3 and the SpaceX fleet at Port Canaveral this morning!

B1048.3 successfully launched its third mission, Nusantara Satu, Thursday evening.

Presser:

 Feb. 24 – Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) today announced the following update:

Today at 1:29 p.m. Israel time (6:29 a.m. EST), Beresheet's first maneuver was completed successfully by SpaceIL and IAI's engineering team. The planned maneuver took into account the problems that were identified in the star trackers after launch.

This was the first time Beresheet's main engine was activated. The 30-second maneuver was made at a distance of 69,400 km from Earth and will increase the spacecrafts's closest point of approach to Earth to a distance of 600 km.

Beresheet continues its course according to plan and the next maneuver is scheduled for Monday night.

SpaceX - In Port Cap Attach - B1048.3 02-24-2019

USLaunchReport
Published on Feb 24, 2019

This booster flown three times looks great. Apparently, SpaceX has given up on lifting the legs for now. Our Computer is old and having a hard time putting out 4K. Sorry If we have to do several different videos. Next Booster lift.
