  • SpaceX launch How to watch Falcon 9 rocket launch

The company flew it for a second time today as part of its goal to use rocket stages multiple times in a bid to cut the costs of its trips to orbit. Liftoff occurred at 12:45 a.m. EDT and the satellite was deployed about 32 minutes after liftoff. The client there was the satellite operator SES, with the payload being set to deliver TV and data services to customers in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

The launch was, of course, the highlight of the event but the breathtaking photos that followed were the real winners.

SES-12 eventually will be positioned at 95 degrees east longitude, co-located with the SES-8 relay station - the first SES satellite launched by SpaceX.

After operational missions with the crewed Dragon capsule were underway for NASA, SpaceX had planned to launch the private tourist moon mission.

The craft, carrying Bangladesh's first communications satellite, the Bangabandhu 1, blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida. The launch was initially scheduled for June 1, 2018. "People don't think it's serious enough yet to figure out how to use it", Thomas Mueller, SpaceX's chief propulsion technology officer, said in May, speaking to attendees on the sidelines of a space conference in Los Angeles.
