SpaceX successfully launched its most powerful rocket Sunday, notching another milestone for the Hawthorne rocket maker.
The nine-engine Falcon 9, carrying a Canadian weather satellite, lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base shortly after 9 a.m.
It marked the first time that a rocket made by SpaceX launched from California. Until Sunday, SpaceX had launched its rockets from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
