SpaceX targeting Feb. 24 Falcon 9 launch of SES-9

SpaceX is targeting a Feb. 24 launch of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying a European communications satellite from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Luxembourg-based SES, the owner of the SES-9 satellite, this morning announced the launch plans, which include a backup opportunity on Feb. 25. No launch windows were released.

The mission has been delayed since December while SpaceX readies an upgraded version of the Falcon 9 that will be launching for the second time.
