SpaceX is back in action and has successfully completed a historic launch from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

After a delay 24 hours earlier over concerns about the rocket, the launch on Sunday appeared to go flawlessly.

It was the first SpaceX launch from Florida since a Falcon 9 exploded on a launch pad on September 1, 2016.

Sunday's launch was also the first from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39 since the NASA Space Shuttles was retired in July 2011. The complex has a rich past: It was used to launch the Apollo moon missions.

On Sunday morning, SpaceX hoisted a spacecraft, named the Dragon, toward the International Space Station, and the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket returned to Earth without issue.
