SpaceX Launches Satellite for SES in Its 11th Mission This Year

GETTYA SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying a TESS spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral in April

A SpaceX rocket delivered a communications satellite to orbit during an early Monday morning launch from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. So far, only the first stages have been landed and launched again. The initial launch was scheduled for last Friday but was canceled for more testing.

SpaceX launched a communications satellite early Monday morning. Weather officials said this is from a weak surface front that will be bring west-southwest winds during the launch window. The launch of SES-10 in March 2017 was a big milestone for SpaceX, which has been working toward reusable rockets for 15 years before successfully launching a recovered first-stage rocket.

The rocket will carry the SES-12 satellite to orbit for the Luxembourg-based telecom company SES. It is created to support SES's direct-to-home broadcasting and data connectivity services in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia, according to SES.
