SpaceX Aims At Yet Another Launch, Today

Share

The first stage of this Falcon 9 rocket was flown on February 19 to send cargo to the International Space Station.

SpaceX is planning to launch a Falcon 9 rocket Wednesday night from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Each of the three launches has put 10 new satellites into orbit, gradually replacing the old Iridium satellites, still in service after almost two decades.

The launch window opens at 6:53 PM EDT, or 3:53 PM PDT today, and it's a two-hour window.

If the Falcon 9 launches at the beginning of the window, it should be a handsome display on the Space Coast.

The plan is for the Falcon 9 rocket to launch and carry the satellite up into space where it will deploy about 36 minutes after launch.

SpaceX aims to bring the Falcon 9 first stage back to Earth again today.

The launch was originally scheduled for last weekend but was moved. For a nascent technology offering as complex as a reused rocket, this ought to assuage any doubts that SpaceX is not utterly committed to its pursuit of affordable access to orbit by way of launch vehicle reusability.

The twin-mission satellite was built by Airbus Defense & Space and will go to 105 degrees West. SES will use a portion of the craft and its C-band transponders. The satellite will help provide media access across North America and expand current coverage to the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, according to EchoStar.

Watch the launch live on NASA T.V. or on SpaceX's website. There's a reinforcement launch date available on Tuesday at 8:31 AM ET.

In January, SpaceX delivered the first batch of 10 Iridium Next satellites in its first successful launch since the massive Falcon 9 explosion in September 2016.
