The Falcon 9 rocket has a height of 215 feet or 65 meters. Falcon 9 will give a thrust 1.7 million pounds, which will generate from its nine Merlin 1D engine. The rocket also possesses a standard launch trajectory. It will arc towards the east of the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9 rocket can accelerate the Crew Dragon more than the sound speed.
