Los Angeles-based space rocket developer SpaceX is targeting yet another launch of a rocket this week, this time, from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Falcon 9's first stage previously supported SpaceX's 10th resupply mission to the International Space Station in February. It's the first of two launches the organization intends to endeavor this week on opposite coasts of the US. If all goes well, the rocket will deliver the satellite to GTO about 36 minutes after liftoff, and then land on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship soon afterwards.

SpaceX will stream the entire launch for free on YouTube.

Yesterday's launch, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, put satellites number 21 to 30 into low-Earth orbit. SpaceX refurbished the booster core from the January 14, 2017, Iridium flight and used it to launch a Bulgarian communications satellite on June 23. The rest will keep on being propelled in 10-satellite augmentations throughout the following year, alongside one launch of five.

Minnesota's Real ID granted grace period
Muszynski said the waiver can be renewed annually through 2020, if the state can demonstrate that it is making efforts to comply. Legislation enacted earlier this year set that deadline for getting the state fully up to speed on Real ID.

The payload to be launched today is the SES-11/EchoStar 105 geostationary communications satellite, which will eventually help provide high speed data services to the North Americas, namely digital television.

SpaceX's live coverage of the mission will begin 15 minutes before blastoff. This is also the second launch attempt this week, after SpaceX successfully launched a mission for client Iridium on Monday. Up until this point, the climate is looking entirely useful for launch, with a 90 percent chance that conditions will be positive.

SpaceX will tonight (October 11, weather permitting) launch a condominium satellite operated by SES and EchoStar.
