Viasat, SpaceX enter contract for future ViaSat-3 satellite launch

Thursday 25 October 2018 | 18:32 CET | News
Viasat contracted SpaceX to launch one of its ViaSat-3 satellite missions aboard a Falcon Heavy. The Viasat mission is scheduled to launch in the 2020 - 2022 timeframe from the Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Viasat chose the SpaceX Falcon Heavy for its ability to fly a near direct-injection mission, inserting a ViaSat-3 satellite extremely close to geostationary orbit.
