SpaceX Launches EchoStar 23 Satellite

16 March 2017
SPACE reports that early this morning, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the EchoStar 23 communications satellite from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. The Space Systems/Loral-built satellite is “near the limit of the booster’s capability,” and due to its weight and orbit demands SpaceX decided not to attempt a powered descent and landing of the booster. The Los Angeles Times (3/15) reports that the successful launch followed the scrubbing of the originally scheduled launch Tuesday due to high winds.
