The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket seems to be ready for its next missions in Space. The rocket performed enough number of sea and land landings since 2015.

The Verge reported ten successful, five failed and lots of fire landing records of SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket since the year 2015. A video showed the compilation of the attempted landings of the Falcon 9 rocket. For SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, both the successes and failures of the Falcon 9 are part of the company's goal since it has been founded 15 years ago.

Before the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was turned into a reusable rocket, the Falcon 9 had several seas and land landing attempts. The first landing attempt of SpaceX Falcon 9 happened on January 1st, 2015, but it was also the first failure of SpaceX.

According to Popular Mechanics, SpaceX Falcon 9 had been busy in the last two years. And the world had watched when SpaceX landed successfully for the first time in December 2015 after its second launch on sea last April 2015. The first successful landing of the Falcon was followed by a failure fourth attempt in January 2016.

Moreover, when the SpaceX Falcon 9 attempted for the fifth time on March 2016, the video signal had been cut out before the landing failed. On the other hand, the first successful free landing of the Falcon 9 happened on April 2016 recorded as SpaceX's sixth attempt. This was followed by the second and third successful sea landing on May 2016.

Unfortunately, the ninth attempt of the SpaceX Falcon 9 for a sea landing on June 2016 was a failure. But then, SpaceX is very persistent to perfect the Falcon 9, so on July 2016, it had its tenth attempt where it gained the second successful land landing. This was followed by the fourth and fifth successful sea landing on August 2016 and January 2017.

Last February 2017, the SpaceX Falcon 9 had managed its third successful land landing. On March 2017, the Falcon 9 had landed twice for the first time and recorded as the sixth successful sea landing. Just this month, the SpaceX Falcon 9 had its fourth successful land landing and is currently the last. Though lots of difficulties and failures at the start, SpaceX, and Elon Musk are incredibly proud of its achievement and milestones for the last 15 years.
