SpaceX signs new commercial launch contracts
SpaceX has received two new orders for Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launch vehicles.
The contracts include launch of a communications satellite for HISPASAT on a Falcon 9 and launch of the Saudi Arabian Arabsat 6A communications satellite on a Falcon Heavy. "We are pleased to add these additional launches to our manifest," said Gwynne Shotwell, President and COO of SpaceX. "The diversity of our missions and customers represents a strong endorsement of our capabilities and reflects SpaceX’s efforts to provide a breadth of launch services to our growing customer base." The above missions are expected to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida between late-2017 and 2018.
