    SpaceX in historic launch

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will deliver SES-10, a commercial communications satellite for SES, to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). SES is a world-leading satellite operator, providing reliable and secure satellite communications solutions across the globe.

    The SES-10 mission will mark a historic milestone on the road to full and rapid reusability as the world’s first reflight of an orbital class rocket. Falcon 9’s first stage for the SES-10 mission previously supported the successful CRS-8 mission in April 2016.

    SpaceX is targeting launch of SES-10 from historic Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The two and a half hour launch window opens on Thursday, March 30, at 6:27 p.m. EDT, or 10:27 p.m. UTC. The satellite will deploy approximately 32 minutes after launch.

    Hot diggidy dog! Successful launch, first stage burn, and reentry and landing (For the 2nd time!) of the first stage! WooHoo!!!!!! Orbit injection appears to be dead on the numbers. A perfect launch for the worlds first reused orbital capable rocket with it landing dead on the bulls-eye so it can reused again. Sweet!!!!!

    Private (well sort of) launch of Beresheet Moon Lander via SpaceX due live early tomorrow morning for us - I think. Just sharing.
