The Falcon 9 rocket launched from Vandenberg air force base in the USA 3 Dec 20:32.
Hundreds of people lined West Ocean Avenue just outside of Lompoc and Vandenberg Air Force Base on December 3 to witness a historic SpaceX rocket launch. Thus, in theory, the company expects to reduce the price by $ 5 million. If that wasn't impressive enough, the launch was also SpaceX's 19th launch of the year-the previous record was 18-and it still has three more launches planned before the year is out. The crew-carrying version of Dragon is schedule to fly a test mission next month, and if all goes well, will carry astronauts to the station later in the year in what would be the first crewed flight from US soil since the space shuttles retired in 2011.

However, as soon as this crucial part was phased out, Falcon's first stage (most expensive portion of the rocket) that was supposed to navigate itself back to the earth malfunctioned.
After it released its payload into Earth's orbit, the SpaceX booster was recovered safely in the Pacific Ocean, according to a SpaceX spokesperson. The hydraulic pump for the landing fins apparently stalled, but the engines stabilized the approximately 160-foot-tall booster just in time, allowing for "an intact landing", Musk noted via Twitter.
The Falcon 9 rocket launch was scheduled for Tuesday, but the night before liftoff NASA announced technicians found mold on food bars for the space station rodent investigation. Musk added that the Falcon 9 appears to be undamaged and is transmitting data.
