And today marks one year since the Falcon Heavy – a rocket with the highest payload capacity of any launch vehicle – was launched.
But – while it was a huge achievement – conspiracy theorists have been more interested in SpaceX’s live feed spotting some very mysterious objects.
Here, Daily Star Online takes a look at the most baffling videos.
‘Formation of lights’ captured before live feed CUT – January 2017
When a Falcon 9 rocket was launched two years ago, it sent the conspiracy world into a frenzy.
Live feed footage shows the rocket hovering in space when suddenly a set of lights appear in the top right of the shot.
Three objects can be seen in a triangular formation while another one is further to the left.
The strange phenomenon is only on screen for a couple of seconds before the feed is cut to an image of the globe.
Tyler Glockner – of YouTube channel secureteam10 – posted the footage online, saying: “This is not debris coming from the rocket.
“Whatever they are, they move together as one, tight unit.
“You can clearly see a formation of three reflective objects.
“I found it very strange that the feed was cut so suddenly at the precise moment this formation of unknown objects were seen passing by.”

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket ‘passes Black Knight satellite’ – November 2018
Viewers were left stunned once again last November when a strange rock-like object was spotted passing a Falcon 9 rocket.
YouTube conspiracy theorists Blake and Brett Cousins – of thirdphaseofmoon – claimed it could have been the infamous Black Knight Satellite.
That refers to the infamous conspiracy theory that there is a spacecraft orbiting the Earth of extraterrestrial origin and that NASA is engaged in a cover-up.
And many viewers seemed to agree.
“Awesome footage, there’s the Black Knight,” one wrote.
Another added: “That’s amazing, I want to know more about the Black Knight.”
But a third had a different view, commenting: “Not the Black Knight satellite, just debris from re-entry.”
‘TR-3B’ spotted before feed cut
It isn’t just Falcon 9 live feeds that have sparked conspiracists into meltdown.
Footage of the Dragon satellite in December appeared to show a dark triangular object moving past the craft.
Just moments after the object appears, the feed switches to a different angle.
Blake and Brett were the first to spot the incident once again and suggested the craft was a TR-3B.
The TR-3B is the name for a highly-speculated secret surveillance plane used by the US Air Force.
“Could this be the infamous TR-3B up in space visiting up close?” Blake asks.
“This is stunning footage.”
