In this article, we will look at a short review of the tasks that SpaceX, the space company Elon Musk assumed as CEO, during 2019.
Elon Musk's space research company SpaceXhas made significant progress in its efforts to reuse space rockets over the past 6 years. 2019 was a year in which we saw the impressive results of these efforts. Throughout the year, the company 13 missions and 15 out of 16 attempts has successfully landed its rockets.
This incredible progress the company has made during 2019 is a YouTube channel “STARSNOOLend Compiled by. With a short science fiction flavor, this video will show you how the tasks performed by SpaceX throughout 2019 to the most crucial points allows us to take a short look. Let's look at this video first, then let's briefly talk about SpaceX's 2019 adventure.

- Iridium 8: The video begins with SpaceX's first mission in the new year. The first mission of 2019 was the last mission of the two-year satellite project, and the rocket was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California to take 10 satellites into space. The project included 75 satellites, 66 of which are operational, for faster communication.
- Nusantara Satu: The burden of this mission, in which a trio of spacecraft was moved into orbit, included Indonesia's communications satellite, a small experimental satellite to be used for military purposes, and a special Israeli-owned satellite to travel to the Moon.
- Crew Dragon Demo-1: This flight was conducted unmanned to test SpaceX's Dragon 2 capsule, and the capsule's safety was tested throughout the mission.
- Intermediate 6A: This was the first commercial flight of Falcon Heavy, the world's most powerful operational rocket.
- Crew Dragon Explosion: The test, which failed in April, was viral on the Internet. SpaceX then showed the leak in the contact as the culprit.
- CRS-17: Launched with the Falcon 9 rocket, the CRS-17 was a commercial procurement service to the International Space Station with the Dragon 1 capsule.
- Starlink v0.9: This mission, one of the pioneers of internet access from space, involved launching 60 Starlink satellites.
- Radarsat Constellation: Canada's Radarsat Constellation mission was to transport 3 surface observation satellites into space.
- STP-2: With this mission, Falcon Heavy was aimed at placing two dozen satellites into orbit. Musk, for this flight “This will be our most challenging flight” he said.
- CRS-18: It was SpaceX's 18th flight to the International Space Station. The Dragon capsule used in this flight carried close to 3 tons of material and aimed to test the capacity of the Starship.
- AMOS-17: This was the third time a Falcon 9 rocket was used on an official mission. The rocket successfully transported Israel's Amos-17 satellite, which weighed more than 6 tons, into orbit.
- Starlink 1: The postponed task was finally completed successfully. 60 satellites were launched into space with 9 Falcon rockets.
- Starship Boca Chica Failure: SpaceX's Starship MK1 prototype, designed for space travel, exploded during the pressure test at the Boca Chica test site in Texas.
- CRS-19: It was the last CRS mission of 2019. Within the scope of the task cargo was moved to ISS. The Dragon capsule, also used in the mission, went into space for the third time.
- JCSAT-18 / Kacific1: The flight from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida aimed to take the JCSAT-18 / Kacific-1 commercial communication satellite into space.
the SpaceX 2019 during this was a brief compilation of tasks that were successful or unsuccessful. The company has left a very positive impression with its success in recent years and it seems that it will continue its success in the coming days.
