Previously flown Falcon 9 rocket lifted upright in readiness for launch

Watch a time-lapse video of the 229-foot-tall (70-meter) Falcon 9 rocket being lifted into place on pad 39A in readiness for the launch of the SES 10 communications satellite. This will be a major milestone for SpaceX as it will mark the first time a flown Falcon 9 first stage has been reused. The transport erector device raised the vehicle upright around 4 a.m. EDT (0800 GMT) on March 30, 2017.
