The reusable Falcon-9R rocket successfully tested aerodynamic rudders, rising to a height of 1 km

    SpaceX continues to test the reusable Falcon-9R launch vehicle, which, according to company founder Ilon Mask, can reduce the cost of space launches by several times. On June 19, the company published a video of a rocket test flight on its Youtube channel, during which the aerodynamic rudders located in its upper part were tested. During the descent, they will allow you to control the flight in a passive mode, without turning on the engines. Earlier this year, folding booms were successfully tested .
