New IOT Launches New Rocket Engine on First Successful Launch Nuked 19 November 2019 Overall IOT is confident it will get off the ground in 2019. Following two failed launches, SpaceX’s reusable rocket system successfully completed the first flight of the Falcon 9 Raptor engine during a Nov. 13 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The engines produced an estimated 116,000 pounds of thrust at liftoff, as reported by NASA. This launch marked IOT’s first flight of the newly designed Falcon 9 rocket as well as the first time the company launched without supporting infrastructure at the Cape. The company spent the past two years investing in facilities in Hawthorne, California, California, and Bangkok, Thailand and developing the launch systems to support its mission. IOT is run by former NASA Space Shuttle commander Jeff Hoffman. The company has flown successfully three times, but hasn’t yet flown in space. SpaceIL – an Israeli nonprofit team – says the recent rocket test was its last mission to its planned first-stage landing pad in the Dead Sea.
