The rocket booster was previously launched into space in February

This evening's mission will be powered by a first stage booster that was used for a previous launch in February.

After their last launch on Monday, performed at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base, SpaceX is working on a follow-up mission, due Wednesday, Oct. 11 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Sunset happens at 6:57 p.m. The satellite will support the delivery of high-definition television broadcasts to viewers across North America.

Catch the launch and landing live at livestream below. While the current version of Falcon 9 is less easily reused than it could be, precisely that issue will be dealt with through the introduction of Falcon 9 Block 5, which will feature an array of upgrades meant to ready the vehicle for crewed flights but also to drastically improve the ease of Falcon 9 reuse.

Once the payload is detached and deployed, the Falcon 9 rocket will fall back to Earth.

Watch the launch live on NASA T.V. or on SpaceX's website. Its thrusters will slow its descent for a controlled landing on SpaceX's remote-controlled droneship, the "Of Course I Still Love You", which is stationed in the Atlantic.

After these two launches, SpaceX will have finished 15 missions this year, nearly twice the same number of as the organization did in 2016; SpaceX's launches a year ago were stopped after one of its Falcon 9 rockets detonated on a platform during a normal filling strategy.

Girls in the US had the 15th highest obesity rate in the world, and boys had the 12th highest obesity in the world. Conversely, the rise in high income countries has slowed and plateaued.

"Each successful launch brings us one step closer to both a technological and financial transformation", Iridium CEO Matt Desch said in a statement.

The landing was the latest in SpaceX's ongoing effort to re-use expensive rocket parts instead of jettisoning them into the ocean after launch.
