SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The rocket is to put a 13,500lb satellite into orbit for the commercial communications company Inmarsat.
Unlike the last launch, SpaceX said there were no plans to land the rocket’s first stage “due to mission requirements.” The I-5 F-4 satellite is to join three other Inmarsat satellites orbiting Earth and will help expand the company’s Global Xpress mobile broadband network.
