Launched on Tuesday by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, the Falcon 9 rocket successfully landed. This is the 31st successful space rocket landing of this year after the landing and the 100th successful rocket landing so far.

The Falcon 9K two-stage rocket took off from Florida at 5:07 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday morning.

The purpose of the rocket was to deliver cargo to the International Space Station.

About 3,000 kilograms of objects were sent to the space station in a dragon capsule on a Falcon rocket, which contained Christmas presents for seven astronauts involved in scientific experiments and Expedition 66.

The first stage booster landed successfully on the naval platform minutes after launch.

Six years ago in 2015, Elon Musk’s company’s first booster successfully landed back on Earth.

Sarah Walker, a SpaceX mission manager, said it was important to use these boosters multiple times to reduce the cost of space flights. The number 100 is a big milestone.

The Dragon Capsule anchored on the space station at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and will remain there for about a month.

The capsule contains Christmas presents for the astronauts and their families, as well as smoked fish and turkey, green beans and fruit cakes to enhance the holiday fun.

“I will not appear in front of Santa Claus and I will not tell you what is being sent upstairs,” Joel Montalbano, NASA’s space station program manager, told reporters.

Delivery also includes washing powder experiments.
