Dazzling SpaceX Nighttime Launch Sends AsiaSat 6 Satellite Into Orbit


Coverage of SpaceX successful launch of a new commercial telecommunications satellite for Asia yesterday. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 1 a.m. carrying the AsiaSat 6 satellite.

The launch was originally scheduled for Aug. 26, but SpaceX pushed it back to give engineers time to investigate the self-destruction of its Falcon 9 Reusable (F9R) rocket during an Aug. 22 flight test in Texas.
