KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fl. (CBS) — Space-X took on a new challenge for themselves as they launched their first ever paid mission.

Between launching satellites for the U.S. and his own Tesla Roadster, Elon Musk’s Space-X accepted a paid mission to launch a satellite in space for Saudi Arabia.

Not only did they successfully launch their first paid mission, they successfully, for the first time ever, landed all three of the boosters back on Earth so they can be reused. Truly a sight to see from start to finish as the crowd cheers the pinpoint landings.
