SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch Stream – First Ever Orbital Rocket Reflight

2017-03-30

SpaceX is spinning up the Falcon 9 rocket once again to launch the SES-10 Satellite into space on Thursday, March 30, at 6:27 p.m. EDT, or 10:27 p.m. UTC. The SES-10 launch will be a milestone in rocket reusability, as this will be the first reflight of an orbital class rocket. If all goes according to plan, the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket will once again descend to the surface and attempt a landing on the droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. More information can be found in the SpaceX press release linked here. If you’re looking to watch the stream with a host leading you through it, check it out at this link. If the more technically oriented stream is your cup of tea, follow this link. We’ll keep them here on this page as well, so you can watch them from Imperium News if you feel like it!

    That’s about the 4th time that the camera magically cut out at the moment of ‘landing’. Also they were not in front of that crowd. I haven’t seen worse greenscreening since Total Recall in 1991.

      The barge was out of line of sight and required a satellite link to broadcast the video. The rocket landing caused the barge to shake which shook the satellite dish out of alignment. connection was re-established when the barge settled down.

      Also I do not watch the hosted livestream I watch the technical one. I prefer not to have people screaming, cheering and crying.
