  • SpaceX will live-stream the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket

Block 5 Falcon 9 is said to be the "final iteration" of the reusable rocket, with potential to handle far more launches than its predecessor, and could one day be used to carry astronauts to space.

The Article from SpaceX Postpones Launch of SES-12 satellite.

SpaceX is preparing again to launch a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the SES-12 spacecraft after its Friday launch was canceled for additional testing. SpaceX won't attempt to recover the first stage after the launch. The weather appears favorable, with a 70 percent chance of "go" conditions.

If this launch of SpaceX would not have taken place on Monday, the following window was scheduled for Tuesday, 5 June. The first stage is back on the launch pad Sunday for its second flight. So we're going really high.

Halliwell said SES-12, built by Airbus Defense and Space, combines features that would have required two spacecraft just a few years ago, providing direct-to-home television and other communications services through six beams covering an enormous area with multiple beams providing broadband connectivity. According to SES, the satellites will provide pay-TV operators the reliability and scalability to elevate viewing experiences by adding more content and delivering higher-quality picture quality to address the ever-increasing audience demand for HD and Ultra HD content. SES-12 is designed for an operational life of some 15 years.

'So five seconds more to burn, a little bit more fuel, and it completely changes the dynamics of the project'.

"We believe there are one billion people in the Asia-Pacific market who still do not have good connectivity to the devices they hold in their hands", said John-Paul Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks. "Ironically, we need to take it apart to confirm it does not need to be taken apart".
