SpaceX SAOCOM 1B Mission Rocket Launch
SpaceX is minutes away from the first polar launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida since February 26, 1969. The Argentinean SAOCOM-1B satellite and two American secondary payloads have been loaded on a Falcon 9 rocket, and liftoff from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) is targeted for 7:18 PM EDT during a launch window that lasts ten minutes. Read more for two livestreams and additional information.



Most Cape Canaveral launches use Earth’s spin in order to reach low inclination orbits, but the SAOCOM-1B mission will fly southward, along the east coast of Florida on a flight path known as the polar corridor. Once launched, it will be deployed into a Sun Synchronous Polar orbit, inclined 97.9 degrees at an altitude of 620 kilometers. SpaceX is set to recover the Falcon 9 rocket’s first stage with a landing at the company’s Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
