SpaceX to launch communications satellite from Cape Canaveral

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (WSVN) – SpaceX’s last pre-dawn launch from Cape Canaveral had some South Florida residents in a panic.

The launch created a streak across the morning sky, on June 29.

Now, SpaceX is gearing up to launch its newest version of the Falcon 9 rocket, called Block 5, from Cape Canaveral at 1:18 a.m. on Tuesday.

The Falcon 9 will transport a communications satellite for Indonesia.

The new rocket made its debut in May and has flown three missions so far.
