Vandenberg has warned people in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura counties that they might hear multiple sonic booms as the Falcon 9's first stage touches down at the base's Landing Zone 4.
SpaceX has successfully recovered a Falcon 9 Block 5 booster on a land-based landing zone for the first time in the rocket's brief history, marking the debut of the company's West Coast LZ-4 and the second flight of a reused Block 5 booster.
SpaceX conducted its seventeenth launch of the year October 7, sending an Argentine radar satellite into low-Earth orbit on a Falcon 9 rocket. "A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves from an aircraft or vehicle traveling faster than the speed of sound".
If the mission goes according to plan, Sunday night will mark SpaceX's first landing of this sort on the West Coast.
The satellite will be operated by Argentina's space agency, known as the National Commission on Space Activites or by its Spanish-language acronym, CONAE. The satellite is created to provide radar imagery to help emergency responders and monitor the environment, including the collection of soil moisture measurements.
Later, SpaceX reported that the SAOCOM 1A radar satellite was placed in its proper pole-to-pole orbit.
SAOCOM 1, together with the Italian COSMO-SkyMed X-Band SAR constellation, make up the Italian-Argentine Satellite System for Emergency Management, or SIASGE. It has previously made such landings on drone ships in the ocean.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying an Argentinian satellite has blasted off from California. Prior landings have taken place on the East Coast.
