Falcon 9 launch of Intelsat 35e (SpaceX) A SpaceX Falcon 9 launched a communications satellite July 5 after last-second glitches scrubbed two prior attempts. The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off at 7:38 pm EDT (2338 GMT) from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, placing the Intelsat 35e satellite into a geostationary transfer orbit a little more than a half hour later. The launch took place after last-second scrubs Sunday and Monday that SpaceX blamed on computer glitches. The launch was the tenth this year for SpaceX, the most missions it has performed in a year and putting the company on track to launch 18 or more times this year. The Boeing-built Intelsat 35e is a high-throughput satellite that will provide services for the Americas, Europe and Africa.
