SpaceX Launches Super-Heavy Satellite Atop Falcon 9 Rocket
Published on May 15, 2017 at 08:00PM: From the report: The 230-foot rocket delivered the spacecraft larger than a double-decker bus to an orbit more than 22,000 miles over the equator.
As a result, SpaceX did not attempt to land the rocket’s first stage either at Cape Canaveral or at sea, and the Falcon 9 booster was not equipped with landing legs.
The Inmarsat-5 Flight 4 satellite, built by Boeing, completes Inmarsat’s four-satellite Global Xpress constellation focused on delivering high-speed broadband data to mobile customers, including commercial aircraft and ships and the U.S. military.
