How to watch SpaceX Falcon 9 launch

How to watch SpaceX Falcon 9 launch

In just a handful of hours, a reused Falcon 9 rocket is expected to lift off from SpaceX's Florida-based LC-39A launch pad, the second launch for the company in just under 60 hours. Up until this point, each endeavor to arrive a Falcon 9 this year has been a success.

The Falcon 9 booster to be launched on Wednesday made its maiden voyage on February, 2017, on a mission to resupply the ISS. It's the first of two launches the organization intends to endeavor this week on opposite coasts of the US. As part of the launch, SpaceX said it will again attempt to land the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket on a droneship in the Atlantic.

SpaceX successfully launched 10 new Iridium communications satellites into low-Earth orbit on Monday (9 October) from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 5:57AM PST. The first seven will deploy 10 satellites at a time and one will deploy five.




The payload to be launched today is the SES-11/EchoStar 105 geostationary communications satellite, which will eventually help provide high speed data services to the North Americas, namely digital television.

SpaceX is gearing a rocket for its second mission in the last three days.

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. Of note, this will be the third time that SpaceX will have launched a previously flown booster. There's a reinforcement launch date available on Tuesday at 8:31 AM ET. The live stream is likely to start above around 15 minutes prior to the launch.
