The Falcon 9 rocket, which they plan to launch on Thursday, was first used in April last year when it launched the Dragon towards the International Space Station. It was the second rocket that SpaceX successfully landed, and the first one that they landed on an ocean platform.

SpaceX test-fired the rocket this week, and they announced that the static fire test was successful.

If all goes according to plan, this will be the first-ever orbital mission achieved with the help of a used rocket.

SpaceX has had eight successful Falcon 9 landings, and on Thursday we should see one of them make history.
