Rocket Trivia: Week 3

Blast off with this month’s trivia, all about rockets, from the mighty Saturn V that propelled the first men to the Moon to SpaceX’s reusable Falcon 9! Test your knowledge below and check back next week for more fun spaceflight trivia!

What is the world's first reusable orbital class rocket?

Correct! Wrong!

SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch vehicle is the world's first reusable orbital class rocket! The Falcon 9 is a reusable two-stage rocket capable of carrying people and cargo into space. It's reusability reduces costs associated with spaceflight, making the Falcon 9 a more cost-effective choice. The Falcon 9 has been the subject of much media attention in recent months with the success of NASA's SpaceX Demo-2 flight, in which astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken made history when they launched to the International Space Station atop a Falcon 9 rocket as a part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. This flight marked the first time a commercial rocket has launched astronauts into space! The mission was also significant in that it returned human spaceflight launch capabilities to American soil for the first time in nearly a decade. Check back next week for more fun spaceflight trivia and in the meantime, don't forget to stop by our newest exhibit which features a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on display near Independence Plaza. It’s one of only two SpaceX Falcon 9 boosters on display and the first commercial space exhibit for Space Center Houston.
