  • SpaceX to Launch Satellite with Pre Flown Rocket Tonight Watch Live

Stringent orbital requirements necessitated that liftoff of the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket had to take place within a one-second launch window.

SES-11, scheduled for launch at 6:53 p.m. EDT (3:53 p.m. PDT) on October 11, will be yet another important step along the path of normalizing reuse in the launch industry.

If the Falcon 9 launches at the beginning of the window, it should be a attractive display on the Space Coast. If this third launch of a "flight proven" booster proves successful, SpaceX will likely have a much easier time of finding customers for flight-proven rockets in the future. SpaceX refurbished the booster core from the January 14, 2017, Iridium flight and used it to launch a Bulgarian communications satellite on June 23.

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 said all 10 satellites were successfully deployed to low-Earth orbit about an hour after liftoff with Iridium acquiring "healthy signals" from each. That's more than any other country or company in the world has managed this year, and it's bound to make SpaceX's competitors quite uneasy.

A previously flown rocket is set to deliver a hybrid communications satellite, EchoStar 105/SES-11, for Luxemburg company, SES. Its thrusters will slow its descent for a controlled landing on SpaceX's remote-controlled droneship, the "Of Course I Still Love You", which is stationed in the Atlantic.

SpaceX will launch a refurbished rocket from the Space Coast on Wednesday night if weather cooperates.
