USA space technology company SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket in the wee hours of Tuesday morning local time, carrying a telecommunication satellite to the geostationary transfer orbit. The two-hour launch window is set to begin at 12:33 AM EST (9:33 PM PST) so it's a late one, but if you're a fan of watching SpaceX make history, this is one to watch.
"Successful deployment of Hispasat 30W-6 to a geostationary transfer orbit confirmed", Space X said in a Twitter message.
The Madrid-based company Hispasat will use the newly launched satellite for a variety of purposes. The Falcon 9 has evolved considerably since its first test flights to become the only fully reusable launch platform in the world.
Commenting on its launch, Carlos Espinós, CEO of Hispasat, said: "this new satellite will allow us to meet the growing connectivity demand detected in the market".
SpaceX has already had a very busy year.
The weather is 90 percent favorable for launch, according to the Air Force forecast. If everything goes according to plan, it will be the 50th time the company's Falcon 9 rocket successfully heads into the stratosphere since its inaugural flight in June 2010.
Rough seas prevented SpaceX from attempting to land the Falcon 9's first-stage booster, which was expected to be destroyed when it splashed down in 26-foot waves.
