SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carries satellite into orbit

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is ready to liftoff early Monday morning from Cape Canaveral carrying the SES 12 satellite.

SpaceX will go for its 11th successful launch of the year early on Monday, with a mission to send a communications satellite into geostationary transfer orbit. For example, the first stage of the recently debuted "Block 5" Falcon 9 is created to fly 10 times with just inspections between touchdown and liftoff, and 100 times or more with some refurbishment in the mix, Musk has said.

This was the second mission for the launcher's first stage, which also helped loft the U.S. Air Force's robotic X-37B space plane last September.

SES was the first company to fly a spacecraft on a used Falcon 9 rocket booster.

Protests resume after Palestinian paramedic’s Gaza funeral
The attacks have petered off in recent months as the Palestinian focus has shifted toward mass protests at the Gaza border. About 1,000 Israeli settlers live in the heart of the flashpoint city, protected by the Israeli military.

Falcon 9 took off at 12:45 am from the Launch Complex.

SpaceX has successfully launched a satellite using a pre-flown rocket yet again.

SpaceX will not attempt to recover the first stage-the rocket will instead fall into the ocean. It is created to support SES's direct-to-home broadcasting and data connectivity services in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia, according to SES.

The flight - set up by the rocket company founded by billionaire Elon Musk - was scheduled for late 2018, but this has been delayed to mid-2019 or later, according to The Wall Street Journal.
