SpaceX Falcon 9 delivers SES-12 into orbit

Elon Musk is the CEO of SpaceX

SpaceX completed its 11th mission of the year when it sent an SES-12 communications satellite into space on June 4.

As planned, the nine Merlin 1D engines at the base of the first stage shut down two minutes and 45 seconds after liftoff, burning through virtually all of the booster's propellants.

SpaceX said Monday the rocket's first stage used to launch the SES-12 satellite was initially deployed in September 2017 to support the Orbital Test Vehicle 5 mission.

"It's big", said Martin Halliwell, chief technology officer at SES, of the satellite. 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.

They are closely followed by one of the teams that made England's last World Cup such a catastrophe, Costa Rica. Alli has been involved in a series of incidents when his temper has got the better of him.

SpaceX won't land the booster again, as the company is trying to phase out the Block 4 rockets for the new Block 5 configuration.

SpaceX later tweeted "Successful deployment of SES-12 to a geostationary transfer orbit confirmed". The all-electric SES-12 spacecraft was built by Airbus Defence and Space, and will rely on electric propulsion for orbit raising and subsequent in-orbit manoeuvres. The good side of all this is it actually extends our (on orbit) life capability from 15 to 22 years.

The craft, carrying Bangladesh's first communications satellite, the Bangabandhu 1, blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida. At the moment, this figure dropped to 40%, reflecting a sharp decline in the world in the number of orders for the construction and launch of larger commercial satellites. "And satellite is one of the (ways) - and sometimes the only way - to connect.to those markets".
