Space-X Launches Upgraded Falcon Nine Rocket

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) - Space-X successfully launched an upgraded version of its Falcon Nine Rocket on Sunday in California.

The vehicle placed a Canadian Science Satellite into orbit, as well as several smaller payloads.

The new version of the Falcon Nine boasts several changes aimed at boosting performance, including more powerful engines and larger propellant tanks.

Last year, the Falcon Nine was the first commercial rocket to successfully deliver an un-manned space capsule to the International Space Station.
