SpaceX launched a critical communications satellite aboard a Falcon 9 rocket early Monday morning from Cape Canaveral.
The launch occurred around 12:30 a.m.
SpaceX said the SES 12 satellite will provide direct-to-home broadcast and communication services in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific region, including India and Indonesia.
The all-electric satellite can last up to 22 years in space.
The launch had been delayed since February.
