The satellite is about the size of a city bus and weighs 6 metric tons, making it the largest geostationary satellite SpaceX has ever launched, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk tweeted Monday. This launch is for the U.S. Air Force and will carry 25 satellites into orbit. "Can't believe it's been fifty Falcon 9 launches already". This is due to unfavorable weather conditions in the recovery area from Florida's Atlantic Coast, the company's website said.

The Falcon 9 achieved 50 successful launches more than four years faster than United Launch Alliance's Atlas V, which debuted in 2002 and has been the US government's workhorse for national security and high-value science payloads. The first stage fell down into the atmosphere, although the company didn't make attempts to recover it for reusing.

About 33 minutes into the flight, the satellite was deployed into geo-stationary orbit, SpaceX said in a webcast. "Built on the SSL 1300 satellite platform, Hispasat 30W-6 is expected to have a useful life of 15 years with 10.5 kW power", the company is quoted as saying. A second firing was required to put Hispasat 30W-6 into the required highly elliptical "transfer" orbit.
