CAPE CANAVERAL (CBSMiami) – SpaceX relaunched the newest version of its Falcon 9 rocket booster from Cape Canaveral early Tuesday morning.
The rocket carried a communications satellite for Telkom, the largest telecommunications satellite provider in Indonesia.
The booster first flew May 11, when it delivered the first Bangladeshi satellite into space. The Block 5 booster, which SpaceX says will be able to fly as many as 10 times with routine maintenance, is the latest for Elon Musk’s company.
SpaceX officials have said that the Block 5 will boost performance and reusability, one of the company’s frequently stated goals.
