Used SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch SES satellite

SpaceX is going to use one of the Falcon 9 rockets it landed earlier this year to launch a satellite for SES.

SES-10 is scheduled for launch in Q4 2016 and will be in geostationary orbit to expand SES’s footprint across Latin America.

The satellite will be positioned at 67 degrees west and will replace the capacity currently provided by SES’s AMC-3 and AMC-4 satellites at that location, as well as bring additional capacity to Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

The satellite’s beams will provide direct-to-home broadcasting, enterprise, and mobility services.
