As expected, yesterday, SpaceX launched the fifth satellite of the GPS III family into Earth orbit, and the first stage of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle successfully landed on the floating platform Just Read the Instructions.
The rocket that launched the GPS III SV05 satellite into orbit launched the GPS III SV04 satellite last November. This is the first launch in which SpaceX has reused a Falcon 9 rocket to launch a US military satellite into orbit.
The launch of the GPS III SV05 satellite, which was built by Lockheed Martin, was broadcast live. The recording of the broadcast can be found here.
In addition, SpaceX has published a video showing the moment the first stage of the launch vehicle lands on a floating platform.

The first satellite of the GPS III family was first launched into orbit in 2018. By 2023, 10 of these satellites will be launched to replace the old satellites that provide the world with a GPS system.
