The Falcon 9 is SpaceX’s most successful rocket design so far, with nearly a hundred successful launches. It’s also the first rocket to successfully land its first stage, and has since landed over 50 first stages, making the rocket much cheaper to launch since the first stage can be reused. The Falcon 9 is also the rocket that carried the Crew Dragon into space with astronauts for the first time on May 30, 2020, which was a milestone event for modern spaceflight. The Falcon 9 gets its name from the 9 Merlin engines that power it.
Like most rockets, the Falcon 9 is much larger than it appears in pictures--the rocket is 230 feet tall! This ornament, on the other hand, is only 6 inches tall, but it’s detailed to look exactly like its full-size counterpart. It’s 3D printed in two colors to provide an added contrast that really brings out the details of the design. The ornament also includes a twine loop for easy hanging.
This Falcon 9 ornament would make a perfect addition to the Christmas tree of your friend or relative who is a fan of SpaceX or space travel in general. The Falcon 9 will go down in history as one of the most impactful rocket designs of 21st century spaceflight, and this ornament is a great way to memorialize it.
