Watch: SpaceX launches satellites into orbit on its sixth Falcon Heavy mission
SpaceX launched its powerful Falcon Heavy rocket for the sixth time and sent three satellites into orbit.
Falcon Heavy lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, loaded with three satellites, after several days of weather delays and a last-minute miscarriage.
The two satellites, O3b and mPOWER, were launched for SES Communications, which said the two satellites would provide broadband connectivity to all parts of the world.
After the two moons separated, the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket returned to Earth and landed on a drone in the Atlantic Ocean.
