SpaceX successfully launched the JCSAT-14 satellite into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit.

The exciting part is the space company once again managed to successfully land the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket on a droneship! This is the third time SpaceX has recovered the rocket post-launch, and the second time it has done so via a sea-based landing.

Now we're patiently waiting for the first reuse of a Falcon 9 rocket! Further details can be read at the Verge.
