SpaceX launch tonight from Kennedy Space Center

11 October 2017, 07:38 | Edward Lowe

A total of 75 satellites are planned for launch, so that nine will be in-orbit spares and six as ground spares.

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying the SES 11/EchoStar 105 communications satellite is scheduled to lift off from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 6:53 p.m. ET (2053 GMT) today.

Trump Threatens Networks That Report Critical Stories of Him
Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve. The president's and the government's power in this area could be limited anyway.

Yesterday's launch, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, put satellites number 21 to 30 into low-Earth orbit.

Over the hour that followed, the Falcon 9 second stage released Iridium's satellites, one by one. On 25 June, they launched the second batch during SpaceX's "weekend doubleheader" when it launched back-to-back Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings in just 48 hours. Grainy video showed the rocket standing upright in the predawn darkness on the droneship, named "Just Read the Instructions". Up next on the docket of launches is SpaceX's SES-11 mission and third commercial reuse of a Falcon 9, now expected to lift off from Kennedy Space Center, Florida on the evening of October 11. While still experimental, it is nearly certain that SpaceX also attempted to recover the vehicle's payload fairing, created to autonomously parachute onto what Elon Musk has affectionately deemed a giant "bouncy castle" floating in the ocean.

Hilarie Burton says Ben Affleck groped her on 'TRL'
Despite coming forward with a full condemnation of Weinstein, Affleck has faced similar pushback from his statement. Ben's long-term friend Matt Damon has also slammed reports he knew anything about the alleged harassment and abuse.

Watch a replay from a camera mounted on-board SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket as it released one of 10 Iridium Next communications satellites Monday almost 400 miles above Earth.

The booster's landing about seven minutes after liftoff marks SpaceX's 17th successful recovery in 22 attempts.
