Falcon 1 – Flight 2

3/21/2007, 1:10:00 UTC – Kwajalein Atoll – DARPA DemoSat

Successful first stage burn and transition to the second stage. A maximum altitude of 289 km. Harmonic oscillation at T+5 minutes. Premature engine shutdown at T+7 min 30 seconds led to a failure to reach orbit. SpaceX claimed a “Partial success” as it gathered enough data for operational flights.
