SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to launch Korean Communications Satellite on Monday

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to launch Korean Communications Satellite on Monday

But a successful landing after launch may be hard because the Geo Stationary Transfer Orbit requires the first stage rocket to reach a significantly higher altitude than other recovered missions.

Dropping tail first and using titanium "grid fins" at the top of the booster to maintain the proper orientation, the computer restarted a single engine as the rocket neared the drone ship, four landing legs deployed and the vehicle settled to touchdown on the landing craft's deck.

Man dressed as Santa Claus shoots people at Halloween party in Texas
Police noted that it's believed the suspect was known to the victims in this case - and this wasn't a random act. Typically, Knouse said, police do not expect an uptick in violence around the Halloween holiday.

This image shows a fire in the engine area of the returning Falcon 9 booster after Monday's successful launch. It is unveiled that the cause of the explosion was rupturing of cold helium pressure vessel in the second stage of the rocket. The new spacecraft replaces Koreasat-5, which is only 11 years old, but lost capacity early due to a solar array drive mechanism malfunction.

The Falcon 9 will attempt to boost the roughly 8,000-pound Koreasat-5A on its way to an orbit more than 22,000 miles over the equator.

KoreaSat 5A is a telecommunication satellite owned by the South Korean company KTSat. SpaceX has topped the maximum annual launch records of Russia's Proton rocket - 14 missions, six of which were government-led - and Arianespace - 12 missions split between six Ariane 5, three Soyuz and three Vega.

That's double last year's count, and 2017 still has two months remaining. According to KTSat, the KoreaSat 5A will provide TV and other communication services to the people of not just South Korea but Japan and Southeast Asia. It is meant to replace Koreasat-5, launched in 2006, to provide high-speed Ku-band television and data across Asia and the Middle East along with maritime coverage over the Persian Gulf, the Indian Ocean and the China Sea. The U.S. Air Force in 2007 leased SLC-40 to SpaceX. A backup launch window opens on Tuesday, October 31 at 3:34 p.m. EDT, or 19:34 UTC.
