SpaceX publishes its most successful photos of its space carpool

The photos of the Transporter-3 mission organized by SpaceX deserve to end up in the background.

SpaceX carried out its first space carpool of the year on January 13, 2022. This is a flight that made it possible to send no less than 105 devices at once, including several dozen small satellites (such as cubesats or nanosats, whose dimensions are close to those of a shoes). The flight was a success.

Following this mission, the second of the year for the American company, the best shots taken on this occasion were shared by the group on social networks and on its Flickr account. As usual, these photos are freely shareable, thanks to the use of a very permissive Creative Commons license. And above all, they are striking.
