SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon 9 from SLC-4 at Vandenberg Air Force Base today. It is the first launch since its successful Falcon Heavy test earlier this month. The launch took off early Wednesday morning, after being rescheduled a couple of times.
The launch was designed to bring the PAZ satellite to orbit, a satellite to provide geocommunications and radar imaging for both government and private commercial customers.
The rocket was also packed with two demonstration micro satellites for its planned internet broadband service. The satellites will perform tests before it’s certified to operate the service, which it hopes to use to generate revenue by signing up subscribers to its internet service.
