SpaceX announced on Wednesday that it will attempt another sea landing with its reusable Falcon 9 rocket after delivering the SES-9 commercial telecommunications satellite into orbit. The SES-9 will enter geosynchronous orbit and drastically expand the capacity throughout the Asia-Pacific region. This marks SpaceX’s fourth attempt at a sea landing. The company has yet to find success at sea, the last attempt being foiled by a wonky landing strut. And it doesn’t look like this time will be much better. According to the SpaceX press release, “given this mission’s unique GTO profile, a successful landing is not expected. ” The delivery will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida during a 90-minute window starting at 6:45pm Eastern.
