Just two weeks after it successfully launched a batch of satellites into orbit, SpaceX is slated to send another Falcon 9 into space. The company will launch a SES-12 communications satellite from Cape Canaveral in Florida, with its launch window beginning at 12:29 AM EDT on Monday morning.
The satellite in question is from SES, a Luxembourg-based telecom company, and will provide communications services for the Asian-Pacific and Middle East regions. The company notes that it’s one of the largest that it’s ever launched, and that it will help provide data in a part of the world where demand is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.
