SpaceX Launches Communications Satellite

SpaceX Launches Communications Satellite

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, early Tuesday morning, on a mission to deploy a communications satellite.

SpaceX says not long after the rocket lifted off, the Falcon's re-usable first stage booster landed successfully on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean.

The second stage stayed in orbit, deploying a communications satellite that will provide service to Indonesia and other areas of South and Southeast Asia.
