After launching, the rocket will deliver NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory, DSCOVR, on a path towards an observation post a million miles from Earth before attempting to land on the automated barge once again. SpaceX could pinpoint what caused the failure last time, which was an insufficient amount of hydraulic fluid that was powering the rocket’s fins, so this time they have added 50% more. The idea behind these return experiments is to be able to recycle rocket stages so that future missions don’t require a new rocket each time, which could dramatically reduce the cost of space travel.
