SpaceX launches largest communications satellites

Elon Musk is the CEO of SpaceX

Today's launch was SpaceX's 56th Falcon 9 rocket flight - the company's 11th flight this year and its fifth launch for Luxembourg-based telecom company SES.

Monday's launch comes eight years to the day when SpaceX first successfully launched its Falcon 9 from the Cape.

The EU said that a first assessment indicated the new steps announced by Iran did not constitute a violation of the agreement. Major worldwide companies are already beginning to distance themselves from Iran in fear of United States sanctions.

The company SpaceX Elon musk moved to end 2018 mid 2019 commercial launch his spaceship with humans to orbit the moon.

Running four days late because of unspecified technical issues, the previously flown Falcon 9's first-stage engines ignited at 12:45 a.m. EDT (GMT-4), generating a torrent of fiery exhaust and thick clouds of steam before vaulting away from pad 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The satellite will join SES-8 at 95 degrees East.

Trump pardons conservative author Dinesh D'Souza, Martha Stewart could be next

"Airbus salutes SES' ambitions regarding innovation and responsiveness in a rapidly changing market and we acknowledge their strong support for all-electric satellite technology", said Nicolas Chamussy, Head of Space Systems. Instead, the satellite will have an electric drive that uses xenon gas pulses to slowly circulate its orbit around the equator for a period of months.

With six wide beams and 72 high throughput user spot beams, SES-12 is one of the largest geostationary satellites that SES has ever launched.

Google Will Try to Tackle Latest iPhones With Pixel Phone Upgrades
The current Pixel 2 costs US$50 less than iPhone 8, while the larger model costs US$50 more than the entry-level iPhone 8 Plus. It will also follow the iPhone X's lead by including a notch at the top of the screen to accommodate front-facing sensors.

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. Among a number of use cases, it is created to expand the operator's capabilities to provide direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia. After extensive tests and checkout, SES-12 should enter operational service early next year.
