McGregor, TX — SpaceX has released video of a test they warned residents would be very loud and very long, and the video is pretty impressive.
Check it out here.
The private space exploration company worked on the reusable rocket over the past year by first working on the booster engines and then gradually pushing them in tests.
Earlier this month, the company warned residents in McGregor that a long lasting test was in the works.
The test of the F9-R rocket lasted 112 seconds.
The rocket generated over a million pounds of thrust.
