How to watch SpaceX Falcon 9 launch

Share

SpaceX will launch a Falcon 9 rocket tonight from Kennedy Space Center that may be visible from South Florida.

The Falcon 9 booster to be launched on Wednesday made its maiden voyage on February, 2017, on a mission to resupply the ISS.

On Wednesday evening, SpaceX plans to launch a satellite using an already flown rocket for the third time ever.

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.

Following the sale, the insider now directly owns 635,124 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $17,014,971.96. The stock of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG ) has "Hold" rating given on Friday, April 15 by Tudor Pickering.

SpaxeX has only launched what it calls "flight proven" boosters twice before, but the company hopes a successful mission today will prove that the practice is reliable.

There is a 2-hour launch window.

Today's launch is for EchoStar and SES, a satellite with a dual goal for both of these clients.

Minutes after liftoff, the Falcon 9's second stage separated and proceeded to orbit for satellite deployment. The rocket is now ready for another flight. SES has shown a lot of confidence in the company's ability to bring safe, reusable launch rockets to the market and has previously employed a previously-flow booster - back in the time when SpaceX's ability in this field remained largely untested.

Wednesday's flight will be brief.

Following separation, the first stage will attempt a landing on the "Of course I still live you" droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

SpaceX's live coverage of the mission will begin 15 minutes before blastoff.
