Falcon 9 launch of GPS 3 SV-05 (SpaceX) A SpaceX Falcon 9 launched a GPS satellite Thursday on the first National Security Space Launch (NSSL) mission to fly a reused booster. The rocket lifted off at 12:09 pm EDT (1609 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The upper stage released the Lockheed Martin-built GPS 3 SV05 satellite about an hour and a half later. This was the first NSSL mission where SpaceX used a previously flown Falcon 9 first stage. The booster on this mission previously launched the GPS 3 SV04 satellite last November.
