The company SpaceX Elon musk moved to end 2018 mid 2019 commercial launch his spaceship with humans to orbit the moon, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Stranaya.

Described as two satellites in one, SES-12 will provide broadcasting and broadband data services focused on the high-growth Asia-Pacific region.

SES was the first company to accept a ride on a used SpaceX rocket, back in March 2017.

The booster was not recovered for a second time and was instead allowed to crash into the ocean. The SES-12 satellite was deployed about 32 minutes after liftoff.

It can help provide with Internet services to mobile operators, passengers on airplanes, cruise liners, as well as remote areas that are still without reliable connections. The SES, which is a Luxembourg-based telecom company, said that the SES-12 is one among its biggest launches aimed at providing crucial information to the Earth. It was the 56th launch of a Falcon 9 rocket, SpaceX's 11th flight so far this year and the company's fifth launch for SES.

"We get a lot of performance from this vehicle", Halliwell said of the Falcon 9. That engine is a monster.

Industry projections show a five-fold increase in aircraft use of satellite communications services over the next five years, a doubling of maritime users and up to a million or more additional "connected enterprises". This version is developed for enhancing the reusability of the rocket.

SpaceX estimates the Block 5's improved features will reduce launch costs from £45 million ($60 million) to £37 million ($50 million). Halliwell said. SES will implement its strategy to launch for the fourth time. At the moment, this figure dropped to 40%, reflecting a sharp decline in the world in the number of orders for the construction and launch of larger commercial satellites. The initial Falcon 9 Block 5 was launched in the month of May.

No attempt was made to land the booster after its second flight.

The rocket was initially scheduled to blast off on May 10, but the firm was forced to delay the maiden voyage after the rocket threw the abort signal 58 seconds before launch. Rocket and payload are in Good health.
