Falcon 9 puts Telstar 18 Vantage satellite into orbit

Monday 10 September 2018 | 14:34 CET | News
SpaceX's new 'Block 5' Falcon 9 rocket put the Telstar 18 Vantage satellite into orbit on 9 September after launching from Cape Canaveral. The satellite's lift-off was slated for July but was delayed several times, Cnet reports. Even the successful launch was delayed by 45 minutes due to rain, lightning and thick clouds. The first stage of the rocket was successfully landed aboard the drone ship located in the Atlantic Ocean, marking the closure of Space's 60th completed Falcon 9 mission.
