SpaceX conducts historic Falcon 9 re-flight with SES-10 Mission. Lands booster again 2017.03.31

Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA - March 30, 2017 - SpaceX took a step into the future Thursday as it reused - for the first time - a recovered first stage of a previously-flown Falcon 9 rocket. Thursday's mission, carrying the SES-10 communications satellite, lifted off from Pad 39A at Florida's Kennedy Space Center at 18:27 local time (22:27 UTC) and once again landed the booster.

Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA - March 30, 2017

SpaceX took a step into the future Thursday as it reused – for the first time – a recovered first stage of a previously-flown Falcon 9 rocket.

Thursday’s mission, carrying the SES-10 communications satellite, lifted off from Pad 39A at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center at 18:27 local time (22:27 UTC) and once again landed the booster.

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will deliver SES-10, a commercial communications satellite for SES, to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO).

SES is a world-leading satellite operator, providing reliable and secure satellite communications solutions across the globe.
The SES-10 mission will mark a historic milestone on the road to full and rapid reusability as the world’s first re-flight of an orbital class rocket.

Falcon 9’s first stage for the SES-10 mission previously supported the successful CRS-8 mission in April 2016.
SpaceX is targeting launch of SES-10 from historic Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.


The two and a half hour launch window opens on Thursday, March 30, at 6:27 p.m. EDT, or 10:27 p.m. UTC.

The satellite will deploy approximately 32 minutes after launch.

A backup launch window opens on Saturday, April 1, at 6:27 p.m. EDT, or 10:27 p.m. UTC.

Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will attempt a landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You” drone ship that will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Payload

SES-10 is SES’s first satellite designed exclusively to serve the thriving markets of Latin America.

With 55 Ku-band transponder equivalents, SES-10 will be one of the biggest satellites covering Latin America and will provide significant capacity expansion to support SES’s reach in the region.

To be positioned at 67 degrees West, SES-10, pursuant to an agreement with the Andean Community (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru), will be used for the Simon Bolivar 2 satellite network.

It will replace the capacity currently provided by two SES satellites at that location, and bring additional high-powered capacity across Latin America ranging from the Gulf of California in Mexico to Cape Horn in Chile.

Thanks to its ability to provide interconnection among the beams, the satellite will offer substantial flexibility to best respond to the markets’ needs.

Launch Facility

Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center, Florida

Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center has a long and storied history dating back to the early 1960s.

Originally built to support the Apollo program, LC-39A supported the first Saturn V launch (Apollo 4), and many subsequent Apollo missions, including Apollo 11 in July 1969.

Beginning in the late 1970s, LC-39A was modified to support Space Shuttle launches, hosting the first and last shuttle missions to orbit in 1981 and 2011 respectively.

In 2014, SpaceX signed a 20-year lease with NASA for the use of historic Launch Complex 39A.
Since then, the company has made significant upgrades to modernize the pad’s structures and ground systems, while also preserving its important heritage.

Extensive modifications to LC-39A have been made to support launches of both commercial and crew missions on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launch vehicles.
