SpaceX launches communications satellite, lands booster

SpaceX launches a satellite and lands a Falcon 9 booster for second time this week

U.S. space firm SpaceX has launched a commercial communications satellite into space with its third partly reused rocket.

'White widow' British IS recruiter killed
Jones, 50, was a high priority on the Pentagon's "kill list" because she was believed to have masterminded dozens of terror plots. She encouraged followers to carry out attacks against the West while defending Isil's beheadings and vowing to do the same.

Some four minutes after launch, the already pre-flown first stage of the rocket landed on a floating barge (named "Of course I still love you") some 600 kms downrange and off Florida's East coast. "A successful landing of the first stage", SpaceX commentator John Innsbrucker said on the company's live webcast, as applause erupted at SpaceX mission control in Hawthorne, California. Eventually, SpaceX hopes to not only increase the pace at which it can launch, but also turn around rockets for reuse within 24 hours, so the more in can launch multiple rockets in the same week, the better for its long-term plan. Another launch helped loft the BulgariaSat-1 spacecraft on June 23.

A flawless sunset launch by Elon Musk-backed SpaceX placed a heavyweight joint-venture Airbus-built SES/EchoStar satellite into geostationary orbit on Wednesday evening.
