By reusing rocket stages for multiple launches, it could drive down the exorbitant cost of flying to space for companies and nations around the world.

The launch marks Block 5's second successful launch after its very smooth debut back on May 11.

This launch will be the 13th for SpaceX this year continuing and the dizzying schedule continues with a launch from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California on July 25.

Reuters said Israel previously rejected a Russian proposal to keep Iranian forces about 80 kilometers from the frontier. It was the second time during the Syrian civil war that Israel has shot down a Syrian warplane, the Ynet website said.

SpaceX successfully launched Telstar 19 VANTAGE to Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) aboard a new Falcon 9 rocket. Built by SSL, a Maxar Technologies Company, Telstar 19 VANTAGE is the latest in a new generation of Telesat satellites with capacity optimized to serve the types of bandwidth intensive applications increasingly in demand by users worldwide.

Liftoff took place at 1:50 a.m. EDT (05:50 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 40.

Rapidly accelerating as it consumed its load of propellants and lost weight, the rocket arced away to the east over the Atlantic Ocean trailing a long jet of fiery exhaust visible for miles around.

Fallout 76 Beta Won’t Begin Until October, One Month Before Release
Bethesda says they will probably share more about Fallout 76 during Quakecon, which is scheduled for August 2018. Folks who pre-order Fallout 76 at a participating retailer will get a crack at the beta.

About 2.5 minutes later, having competed its job, the first stage separated from the stack.

Meanwhile the second stage continued powering toward orbit with its single Merlin Vacuum engine, which ignited seconds after stage separation. Basically, this means the booster will find its way home to land at a selected site a few miles from where it launched. The Block 5 can be used hundreds of times if recovered successfully.

For this particular trip, the rocket sent the Telstar 19 Vantage communications satellite into orbit, which is tasked with providing broadband internet service for folks in the Americas. "The satellite has a mix of Ka- and Ku-band capacity. So, in addition to being able to kick back and enjoy an in-flight movie or check your email from 35,000 feet, the aircraft crews and the maintenance teams are also able to benefit from this in-flight connectivity", said Brian Mahlstedt during SpaceX's launch webcast.
