The Falcon 9 first stage carries landing legs which will deploy after stage separation and allow for the rocket’s soft return to Earth. The four legs are made of state-of-the-art carbon fiber with aluminum honeycomb

Their dimension aren’t available over the internet but it might be of length 60 ft or 18~ meters. Might be standing 8~9 meter when deployed. As they contains crushable shock absorbers. Their length do decrease during landing.
