A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will deliver SES-12 to a geostationary transfer orbit (GTO). The SES-12 satellite will improve communication and connectively in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.
For this launch, the first stage of the rocket is flight-proven, meaning it flew in a previous mission.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches with the purchase of admission and a launch transportation/viewing ticket. Availability of viewing opportunities and locations is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval.
Due to the launch window scheduled significantly outside visitor complex operating hours, no launch viewing opportunities are available for SpaceX SES-12.
