SpaceX recently launched a Falcon 9 rocket (and landed) for satellite internet rival OneWeb.

OneWeb's own launch preparations were blocked by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and turned to Space X for launch.

At 5:27 p.m. EST on Thursday Falcon 9 rocket carried 40 OneWeb satellites & launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC).

Spectacular views of the Falcon 9 when its first stage separated were taken by cameras on the ground.

It made a precise landing on a SpaceX pad at the neighboring Cape Canaveral Space Station when it returned to Earth.

It was SpaceX's 145th consecutive rocket recovery & the 4th launch & touchdown for this specific booster with the Falcon 9 first stage.
