Weather looks good for Wednesday sunset SpaceX launch

12 October 2017, 12:52 | Justin Tyler

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying the SES 11/EchoStar 105 communications satellite is scheduled to lift off from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 6:53 p.m. ET (2053 GMT) today.

The Falcon 9 rocket was previously used to deliver cargo to the International Space Station in February. It's the first of two launches the organization intends to endeavor this week on opposite coasts of the US. This marked the 10th successful landing of a Falcon 9 first stage at sea.

Monday's launch was the third of eight planned for Iridium, as part of a $3 billion project to upgrade the company's global communications network. Halliwell added that SES does get a minor discount for using a pre-flown discount, and said that in the future: '"You'll just buy a launch service and whether it's a new vehicle or a reflown vehicle, maybe some bits of both - it's not going to matter".

Today's launch is for EchoStar and SES, a satellite with a dual objective for both of these clients.


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

After these two launches, SpaceX will have finished 15 missions this year, nearly twice the same number of as the organization did in 2016; SpaceX's launches a year ago were stopped after one of its Falcon 9 rockets detonated on a platform during a normal filling strategy.

What time is the SpaceX launch?

A webcast of the launch attempt is set to begin about 15 minutes before the launch window opens - I've embedded it below.
