SpaceX was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk, the man behind the famed Tesla Motors. The Falcon 9, the type of rockets shown here, was created by SpaceX to facilitate the safe transport of spacecraft and satellites into orbit. In addition to these uses, the company just embarked on its third attempt to land a very special type of rocket: a reusable Falcon 9.
The Hawthorne, California-based Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, also known as SpaceX, is no stranger to rocket launches. To celebrate its many trips outside of our atmosphere, SpaceX has released an extremely high-quality supercut of its Falcon 9 rocket launches. The quality of the video, combined with a number of slow motion shots of the jaw-dropping beginning of a rocket's journey, makes for a great experience.
