First Recycled Rocket To Launch


SES will become the first company to launch a payload on a used Falcon 9 rocket. SpaceX sent the rocket to the ISS before being successfully recovered in April. To date, Six Falcon 9 boosters have been recovered, but none have been re-flown. Reusing rockets is intended to bring down costs and increase launch frequency. The SES-10 launch marks a milestone that could cut costs by 30%. It will provide telecommunication services to Latin America later this year.
