VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, CALIFORNIA – On Monday, December 3 at 1:34 p.m. ET, SpaceX successfully launched Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express to a low Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
A series of six deployments, occurring between 13 to 43 minutes after liftoff, will be followed by Spaceflight’s own deployment sequences.
Spaceflight’s deployments are expected to occur over a period of six hours.
Falcon 9’s first stage for the Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express mission previously supported the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 mission in May 2018 and the Merah Putih mission in August 2018. Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which was stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
