SpaceX and Boeing team up for satellite launch. Here's what brought them together

The new service offering is created to work for customers who can take advantage of a "rideshare" launch, sharing space on a Falcon 9 with other small satellites being sent up.

Nearly three years after a Space Exploration Technologies Corp. rocket blew up on the launch pad, Elon Musk's rocket company pulled off a do-over launch for its customer.

Unfortunately, the mission was not able to make its August 5th launch window, and SpaceX is now targeting a launch on Tuesday, August 6th instead.

Usually, the standard prelaunch test for SpaceX missions is a static fire.

SpaceX used the same first-stage booster to launch two previous satellites: Telstar-19 Vantage for Canadian operator Telesat in July 2018, and Es'hail-2 for Qatari operator Es'hailSat in November 2018. SpaceX was trying to recover the fairing, or nose cone, halves after they fell into the ocean. Tuesday's launch was the company's 10th this year.

After the loss of Amos-6, this will be the first time Falcon 9 will launch a Spacecom satellite.

6, a Block 5 SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and its AMOS-17 (AMOS stands for African Mediterranean Orbital Satellite) payload was launched from Space Launch Complex-40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in Florida.

Danilo touches down in Turin ahead of finalising move to Juventus
Sky in Italy say City will pay £27.5m for the 25-year-old Portugal worldwide , who joined Juventus one year ago from Valencia. The Premier League champions are prepared to pay a fee plus 28-year-old Danilo in order to land the Portugal right-back.

The Falcon 9 first stage booster has already flown twice before, as per SpaceX.

They're clearly still buzzing from the success of the recent Falcon Heavy launch, and now the new program, called the SmallSat Rideshare Program, will offer operators of tiny satellites more flexibility when launching to space.

Unlike numerous missions that the Hawthorne, California-based company carries out these days, SpaceX did not attempt to recover the rocket's first stage.

The satellite was deployed approximately 32 minutes after the liftoff, according to SpaceX's live broadcast.

However earlier than the mission can get off the bottom, SpaceX wants approval from the Air Power's Japanese Vary.

The rocket is outfitted with 5 strap on strong rocket motors, created to assist raise the large payload on board - the fifth Superior Extraordinarily Excessive Frequency communications satellite tv for pc (AEHF-5).

The AEHF system, developed by Lockheed Martin, provides vastly improved global, survivable, protected communications capabilities for strategic command and tactical warfighters.
