Last March, a Falcon 9 was relaunched into space-the first time an orbital rocket was reused. The launch had been pushed back several times since late 2017, with the past week's extreme weather on the East Coast contributing to the most recent delay. The Zuma mission was a success on at least one count: SpaceX successfully landed the rocket's first stage for reuse in a future launch, a key step in its goal to drive down the cost of access to space.
