The 156 foot first-stage rocket made history back in December 2015 when it guided itself back onto solid ground at Cape Canaveral, Florida where it originally departed from.
The mission which sent 11 Orbcomm communication satellites into space would mark the first time SpaceX completed a vertical first stage landing without the rocket tipping over, and bursting into flames.
In the summer of 2016, SpaceX positioned the Falcon 9 booster in an upright position on the intersection of Crenshaw Blvd. and Jack Northrop Ave., the southeast corner of SpaceX’s main building.
The dominant structure towers over a neighboring multi-story parking garage and can be seen as far away as nearby Interstate 105 – closest freeway to SpaceX, Tesla’s Design Studio and the Los Angeles Supercharger (StreetView).2015
