SpaceX successfully launched the SES-12 satellite to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) on Monday, June 4, 2018 from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. Liftoff occurred at 12:45 a.m. EDT. The SES-12 satellite was deployed about 32 minutes after liftoff.
Falcon 9’s first stage for the SES-12 mission previously supported the OTV-5 mission from Launch Complex 39A in September 2017. SpaceX did not attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage after launch.

Would it be possible to get the 1st 30 seconds in a clip to show my 8th grade science students before they launch their model rockets? First year doing model rockets with my students and we're having a BLAST! ;~) Thanks to whoever can help us out with this...we want to put it as the leader for our 5 minute "launch tutorial" that we (my colleague and I) filmed this week. ~Kristine

I love how the broadcast tells the exact and specified location LOL! It literally said Cape Canaveral, Florida, Earth..I love how it said Earth because I know in the future we might have something like Big Crater, Starland, Mars :O

Idea,, nest a Falcon 9 in between two sls side boosters. Leave the Merlins off until just before srb cutoff so you would have a fully loaded falcon 9 going super fast, and way high. You could get to mars in about two weeks, assuming such a thing could hold together and steer etc. Also assuming that when you got to mars you could slow down and not go to Jupiter. I also see several other possible issues, but hey, think big.

The cliché melodramatic royalty-free music in Airbus®' video presentation of their “innovative” product unit aside.. I call bluff on SES® presentation which you finally delved upon after teasing us here and there, not before 5 minutes. What?!? Did they say “...through...”? Then that's okay. Also, the “internet connectivity” claim can be believed because there are dozens of island nations in Pacific and countless islands in both of Indian Ocean and West Pacific Ocean but.. “satellite telephony”?!? 😂😂😂 Gimme a break! The satellite is for West to Southeast Asia, not Africa that civilians "may" have to be awarded with that privilege. So if your video focuses on civilians, talk only about them. Gotcha? And unlike others, I didn't watch it to cheer for SpaceX® but because I'm one of the millions direct-stakeholders in this. I'm obviously not a direct-client but the end-client of the services provisioned via that satellite which is the replacement of NSS-6, a satellite due retirement at the end of this year. It was launched 4 years before SES® even owned it. And this satellite will work with constellation of SES-8. But wait.. Wasn't it said to be deployed above the North Indian Ocean, then why the last globe-path shows it's far from its intended destination to reach within that short time? Due to increasing speed? Because acceleration totally surpasses gravity at GS-orbit? 🤔

Dear Enginneers, Hello. It is possible to in orbit a 300-meter-long rotating Space Station with just the launch of a rocket. I know how to do this. I'm waiting for an invitation from you to be part of the team. A hug to everyone.

Script definitely sounds more technical now; reminds me of the good old NASA days! But a six minute second stage burn followed by another minute burn after that? Dang that M-Vac D must have a really large fuel tank onboard. Something did fall off the rocket on fire just after launch and just after that you can see small flames (not flowing through the nozzles at a high velocity) on the first stage. Might want to check all seals for leaks next time. The added blur and color filters when the M-Vac D ignite help to hide those pesky space bubbles. Still visible during the satellite deploy and fairing separation. By the way, the planet did not look authentic at all. It was probably the least believable aspect of this launch aside from the aforementioned pesky space bubbles. Good luck deceiving us next time dear friend. Anyone want to go swimming?

Are you thinking about the program of Falcon Heavys or Falcon 9 to the Moon? It can be real if you launch, um, I can say 2 Falcon Heavys with landing module and another fuel tank and one Falcon 9 with passengers and stock it all in orbit and then launch all this on Moon. Who knows, maybe it's really can be real! (Sorry for not very good English, i'm Ukrainian). "If you want, you can anything". You're a humans, and not just humans, you are "SPACE PEOPLES", you can everything if you wants it!!!

Splashed to the Ocean. It was (now obsolete) "Block 4" version of Falcon 9 rocekt capable of only 2 reflights . Right now SX is switching to "Block V" version (10 reflights).

I'm wondering if SpaceX has given any thought to in-air capture which had been done way back in the 50s in recovering photo film canisters from spy satellites. If they can get the second stage back (or fairings) to where they're floating down on parachutes they could possibly be captured by aircraft using trailing "sky hooks" and then hoisted into the cargo bay of the plane. That should be much easier than trying to dynamically position a recovery boat.
Wojtek Sykurski
Wojtek Sykurski Pirms 2 Gadiem
There is already a discousion about it on SX reddit page. Seems that SX is trying to do everythin possible to make recovery as cheap as they can. Using Helicopters (and another ship to carry them) may cost to mach.

How many more hundreds of millions of dollars will it take to make the flat brainers realize they are dumb?

Solution for less fuel / weight: Put the rocket on a magnetic rail to get it up to high speed then light off the rockets at the end of the rail thus saving fuel, weight and pollution (horizontal magnetic rail transitioning gently to vertical).

why don't we see boosters return anymore?
VedTraed Pirms 2 Gadiem
It's right in the description of the video: "SpaceX did not attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage after launch.". In order to return the boosters, som fuel has to be saved for the boostback burn and landing. When launching heavy payloads, to geostationary orbit in particular, they sometimes have to burn all the available fuel, expending the booster in the process.

38:08 how is it possible that the space dirt is slowely moving on the camera while the second stage is moving with 26461 km/h (just before ses2)? Did those particles receive acceleration from the rocket as well? I mean, what are the chances of finding particles in space that move in almost the same speed and direction as your rocket?

Brian: wonderful commentary as always. I especially enjoyed learning about the four factors being monitored: Vehicle, Payload, Range and Weather. And then we cut to live sounds and it was just ethereal: the rocket venting and the crickets and night sounds as we waited for the command center to break in. I just wanted to Mind Meld with those moments.

I was watching the speed of the craft after second engine cut off and i noticed that the speed steadily reduced and did not stop. I don't understand how the payload can stay in GSO when it's speed in constantly reducing. If anyone can explain i would be grateful.

How Does it Really Work I was stumbling a bit on how to describe the effects of gravity on objects. Thanks for the clarification.
How Does it Really Work
Good explanations. Only I would suggest to remove "to some degree" from "Any object in absence of thrust will be affected by gravity to some degree." All objects are subject to gravity in exactly the same way no matter what they are made of or what else they do. This empirical observation is what made Einstein to realize that gravity is the manifestation of the properties of space-time itself and have lead to the development of General theory of Relativity.

Slartybarfast B
Slartybarfast B Pirms 2 Gadiem
Sam Marks You're welcome. The scale of the ballistic arc is often lost on people. Zero gravity is a myth. The gravity of Earth extends far beyond the moon. "Weightlessness" in space is a sensation experienced by man and machine due to being in a state of freefall. Any object in absence of thrust will be affected by gravity to some degree. It will 'fall' towards the nearest massive object. The point of orbit is to find the balance between velocity and gravity. If that balance may be attained, in absence of aerodynamic drag and lunar gravity, an object would theoretically orbit perpetually.
