SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The rocket was to put into orbit a satellite for the commercial communications company Inmarsat. Unlike the last launch, SpaceX said there were no plans to land the rocket’s first stage “due to mission requirements”. The I-5 F-4 satellite is to join three other Inmarsat satellites orbiting Earth and will help expand its Global Xpress mobile broadband network.
