Falcon 9 soars into space with SES 12

SpaceX launch How to watch Falcon 9 rocket launch

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. launched a satellite for long-time customer SES SA of Luxembourg early Monday, marking the company's 11th mission of the year.

SpaceX successfully launched a rocket into the night sky about a half hour after midnight Monday morning, deploying a European company's satellite, SES 12, with no apparent problems.

SpaceX later tweeted "Successful deployment of SES-12 to a geostationary transfer orbit confirmed".

The launch was originally scheduled for early Wednesday morning, and then postponed again to early Friday.

Trump has that power to pardon himself, Giuliani said, but "no intention of pardoning himself". Moreover, Trump claimed that Mueller's investigation was unconstitutional.

The 12,000-pound SES-12 spacecraft, built by Airbus Defence and Space, will deliver high-speed data to across Asia and the Pacific.

This flight will use Falcon 9 first stage rocket that first launched the US Air Force's X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle on its fifth mission, last September.

Instead, the moon flight will now take place in the middle of 2019 or later, the Wall Street Journal reported, though the company founded by Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk hasn't officially updated its timetable for the moon launch.

Musk also wants to reuse the two-stage Falon 9's upper stage and its payload fairing - the nose cone that protects satellites during launch.
