SpaceX made it two perfect launches in three days as it blasted off its Falcon 9 . On Monday SpaceX launched 10 satellites to bolster the global data communications network for the Virginia-based company, Iridium.
The EchoStar 105/SES-11 blasted off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Its satellite was due to be deployed approximately 36 minutes after liftoff. It’s the third time SpaceX has used one of its landed boosters for a second flight.
Falcon 9’s first stage for the EchoStar 105/SES-11 mission previously supported SpaceX’s 10th resupply mission to the International Space Station (CRS-10) in February of this year. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the ‘Of Course I Still Love You’ drone-ship, stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.However Space X is also planning another launch in early November.
