Stringent orbital requirements necessitated that liftoff of the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster rocket had to take place within a one-second launch window. Sunset happens at 6:57 p.m. On Wednesday, the organization is booked to launch a hybrid broadcasting satellite to be utilized by the two SES and EchoStar.
Beginning with SES-10's launch in March 2017 and BulgariaSat-1 in June 2017, SES-11 will be the third commercial reuse of a Falcon 9 in a bit less than seven months. The satellite will support the delivery of high-definition television broadcasts to viewers across North America.
The present launch is commonplace to SpaceX since the organization has essentially done it sometime recently. The satellite weighs approximately 5,200kg and will thus allow the reused Falcon 9 first stage to be recovered aboard the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You.
The stream will begin about 15 minutes before liftoff.
After these two launches, SpaceX will have finished 15 missions this year, nearly twice the same number of as the organization did in 2016; SpaceX's launches a year ago were stopped after one of its Falcon 9 rockets detonated on a platform during a normal filling strategy.
The space company hopes to fly more used rockets in the coming months as it works to further reduce the cost of space travel. For a nascent technology offering as complex as a reused rocket, this ought to assuage any doubts that SpaceX is not utterly committed to its pursuit of affordable access to orbit by way of launch vehicle reusability.
"Each successful launch brings us one step closer to both a technological and financial transformation", Iridium CEO Matt Desch said in a statement.
