One thing you don’t get a good sense of from the SpaceX livestream is the sonic booms as the boosters are about to land and just how dang loud they are. It’s quite something.
This is the moment captured on camera of the two outer boosters of Falcon Heavy returning to Earth, before a huge double sonic boom rings out.
On Wednesday evening, Elon Musk’s latest SpaceX operation successfully launched a Tesla Roadster into orbit. The rocket left the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida at 8:45pm BST.
And three minutes later, the two side supports landed back at Delta Launch Pad 37B – just as planned.
Footage shows the moment they descended down to American soil in a synchronised landing.
A sonic boom can be created by shockwaves coming from objects traveling through the air faster than the speed of sound.
