The rocket took off on Wednesday from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at around 6:53 pm EDT, carrying an Airbus-built communications satellite for SES and EchoStar.

SpaceX is gearing a rocket for its second mission in the last three days.

Some four minutes after launch, the already pre-flown first stage of the rocket landed on a floating barge (named "Of course I still love you") some 600 kms downrange and off Florida's East coast. And that did indeed happen; the Falcon 9's second stage deployed the satellite into its planned geostationary transfer orbit 36 minutes after liftoff. That first stage also was recovered. Overall, it was the private space company's 15th rocket launch of 2017.

Beginning with SES-10's launch in March 2017 and BulgariaSat-1 in June 2017, SES-11 will be the third commercial reuse of a Falcon 9 in a bit less than seven months.

The Falcon 9 rocket "is now standing on the deck", said the SpaceX commentator, as video images showed the smoking rocket securely parked on the platform.

The SpaceX rocket launched at 5:37 a.m., Pacific time, Monday from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the company said in a statement. It was the "third successful mission with a flight-proven orbital class rocket", said SpaceX on Twitter. Musk, SpaceX's chief executive officer, has championed reusability- once derided as a insane idea-to lower launch costs and win a growing roster of customers. Its payload was a communications satellite capable of broadcasting on both the Ku-band for client EchoStar, and the C-Band fro SES. At the time, Chief Technology Officer Martin Halliwell said the successful mission "made a little bit of history and opened the door to a whole new era of spaceflight".
