SpaceX is ready to launch a Spanish satellite once more in the International Space Station. It will be taken off from Pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station of Florida tomorrow morning at 12.33 a.m. Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX says, the mission was already set up at the end of February but some of the SpaceX officials wanted to check Falcon 9 rocket for cargo fairing. This is the reason why they decided to fly the rocket into space again.

The rocket will carry a spaceship for Hispasat, a 25-year-old operating company for different Spanish communications satellites. Hispasat is located in Madrid Spain. It mainly covers regions of North Africa, America, and Europe. It broadcasts more than 1,250 radio and television channels through its satellites to more than 30 million homes in Brazil and the Andes mountain regions of South America. This will be launch satellite of SpaceX this year.

SpaceX plans to throw off its rocket drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean. The satellite that will soon take off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station is called as 30W-6. A similar launch was successful when SpaceX had sent 4,800 pounds of payload into the orbit towards the international space station.

30W-6 is a three-booster rocket that will deliver broadcast services for broadband, corporate networks, television, telephony, landlines, mobile telephones and video conferencing and other telecommunications applications. It is build using 4 X SPT-100 plasma propulsion engines.

When the SpaceX launched this satellite in February last month, a number of space fanatics, government officials and industrial professional of space launches were keen to observe the flying Falcon Heavy.

Among the three stages of the rocket, the first two stages were thrown off on the land while the third part in the sea. All the three stages were destroyed.
