Include a SpaceX Falcon 9 launch in your late Monday night plans

SpaceX Falcon 9 Launching 50th Mission on Tuesday

The launch is planned for 12:33 a.m. Tuesday.

After a delay of nine days, SpaceX is scheduled to launch a new Falcon 9 rocket in the wee hours of Tuesday, carrying its payload of a telecommunications satellite for delivery to a geostationary transfer orbit.

SpaceX delayed the Falcon 9 launch two weekends ago to perform further testing on the rocket, the company said in a tweet.

This launch marks the 50th launch of Falcon 9 and the 56th SpaceX launch in total.

Musk's company reached another milestone with the flight, launching its 50th Falcon 9 from the same launch pad that hosted the maiden flight nearly eight years ago.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk shared his reactions via a Twitter post after the successful launch.

The latest Falcon took flight from Cape Canaveral, Florida, early Tuesday, successfully hoisting a massive communications satellite for Spain's Hispasat corporation.

The mission itself wasn't among the company's most spectacular: there was no dramatic landing of the first-stage booster or Roadster being launched toward Mars.

SpaceX has 30 missions scheduled for 2018, nearly doubling the number from 18 in 2017.

Tuesday's launch was delayed from February 25 for tests of the pressurization system in the Falcon 9 rocket's nose cone, which worked as planned during the launch.

The Falcon 9 first flew in 2010, and since then, has become the California-based company's workhorse for sending supplies to the International Space Station, launching commercial satellites and secretive government payloads.

The Hispasat 30W-6 is also meant to increase connectivity and reduce the digital divide in LATAM, the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa, and provide connectivity in high-speed rail and maritime services in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
