The rocket has initiatives to transport an SFS-12 satellite into space this month.
SpaceX has launched a satellite by using the pre-flown rocket.
Standing some 27 feet tall and weighing almost 12,000 pounds, Halliwell joked that the spacecraft built in France by Airbus Defense and Space barely fit inside the Falcon 9 rocket's nose cone, or payload fairing. "Now working towards a June 4 launch of SEE-12 from Pad 40 in Florida", says Space X through Twitter. Liftoff winds are the primary weather concern on launch day. Eight years after the Falcon 9's debut on the same pad, the rocket launched from the Launch Complex 40 at 12:45 pm and sent a rumble across the Space Coast, which overwhelmed several residents before the start of the work week.
The satellite could help broadcast television programs directly to more than 18 Million households in the Asia-Pacific region, along with the SES-8 satellite, launched in 2013 by SpaceX.
"In the back of your mind, well, it's never been done before, is this all going to come apart at the seams?"

SpaceX has told Nasa it is targeting the first astronaut test flight no earlier than December 2018, but some observers say the schedule could slip to 2019. The 4 hours launch window was opened at near about 12:29 a.m. ET. That launch reportedly marked the 5 mission of the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle.
Notably, the Falcon 9 is a 230 feet long rocket, which will carry a communication satellite atop.
"The launch vehicle is expendable", said Martin Halliwell, chief technical officer for SES. They will be side by side over a length of 95 Degrees above the equator, more than 22,000 Miles upwards.
The firm has reflown the landed boosters for 12 times and Falcon-3 stages for 13 times. "Space X correspondent explains", Landing the rocket with such a heavy satellite is a challenge".
The Falcon 9 rocket is seeing more use due to upgrades that give it more thrust.
The powerful, hefty SES satellite, weighing in at 12,000 pounds (5,400 kilograms), will provide TV and data coverage across Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East.
