Thirty-two minutes later, after firing of engines, the top floor of the rocket used the communications satellite SES-12, which is one of the largest and most powerful, by SES of Luxembourg.
Without having to reserve propellants for a landing attempt, along with use of an upgraded block 5 second stage, the Falcon 9 was expected to boost the 11,800-pound SES-12 satellite into a "super-synchronous" transfer orbit, an ellipse with a high point of around 36,000 miles and a predicted low point of 182 miles.
The company SpaceXElon musk moved to end 2018 mid 2019 commercial launch his spaceship with humans to orbit the moon.
The Hawthorne-based company's Falcon 9 rocket carried the payload from Space Launch Complex 40 in Florida around 12:45 a.m. local time.

Standing some 27 feet tall and weighing almost 12,000 pounds, Halliwell joked that the spacecraft built in France by Airbus Defense and Space barely fit inside the Falcon 9 rocket's nose cone, or payload fairing.
Instead, the satellite will rely on electric propulsion, using pulses of xenon gas to slowly circularize its orbit around the equator over a period of months. SpaceX is switching to a new and improved line of boosters, and so made no effort to recover this one. SES-12 is designed for an operational life of some 15 years. Weather officials said this is from a weak surface front that will be bring west-southwest winds during the launch window.
