Falcon 9 • Astra 1P

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched Astra 1P, a wide-beam satellite, into geostationary Earth orbit for Luxembourg-based SES. The Ku-band satellite, also known as SES-24, will operate at the 19.2° East position. It’s designed to provide television transmission services for about 119 million homes across Europe, specifically in France, Germany and Spain. Following stage separation, the Falcon 9 first stage booster landed on the droneship, ‘Just Read the Instructions.’ Delayed from June 18 and 19 due to poor weather.
