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.

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 Block 5 variant of the rocket, optimized for reusability, has flown a single time, on May 11.

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.
