  • SpaceX launch How to watch Falcon 9 rocket launch

SpaceX used one of its Falcon 9 Rockets to get the payload into space.

The first stage Falcon 9 rocket that was used for this launch was used initially for launching the US Air Force's X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle a year ago in the month of September.

No attempt was made to recover the pre-flown first stage.

The company SpaceX Elon musk moved to end 2018 mid 2019 commercial launch his spaceship with humans to orbit the moon, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Stranaya.

The latest forecast from the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron gives a 70% chance of overall acceptable launch weather conditions.


If this launch of SpaceX would not have taken place on Monday, the following window was scheduled for Tuesday, 5 June. Upgrades to the Falcon 9 rocket have seen it getting more of a use and focus lately.

SpaceX won't land the booster again. "We're going really high". So we're going really high. After extensive tests and checkout, SES-12 should enter operational service early next year. This delay is the second time the company is postponing the launch of the communication satellites.

SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 16 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). This has it carrying larger satellites into orbit.

SES-12 is created to replace NSS-6 and will be co-located at 95 degrees East and expanding DTH and other connectivity over India, as well as Eastern Europe and the Middle East, while offering coverage as far as Australia, Japan, and South East Asia. "And satellite is one, and sometimes the only, way to connect 2G, 3G and 4G to those markets". "Ironically, we need to take it apart to confirm it does not need to be taken apart".
