As the saying goes, the third time’s a charm.
The conditions were perfect, wind was down, temperatures were moderate, and SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launch out of Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station was a success on Tuesday.
“Mission confirmed,” announced ground control once the rocket was safely past Earth’s atmosphere. Roughly 45 minutes after launch, the rocket had finished safely putting its satellite into orbit.
“Spacecraft separation confirmed!” SpaceX tweeted. “SES-8 is now in its targeted GEO transfer orbit.”
