Proving out a successful booster retrieval system on the West Coast marks another step in SpaceX's drive to increase rocket reusability and as a result drive down the cost of access to space. There's no specified launch window, and that could force SpaceX to move liftoff to October 11th if it has to scrub the launch on the 7th. The second satellite will be SAOCOM 1B. It, too, found success in landing at a new site north of Los Angeles.
The launch is scheduled for shortly after 7:20 p.m., Vandenberg Air Force base officials said in an advisory.
The 3,500-lb. (1,600 kilograms) SAOCOM-1A satellite was developed by Argentina's national space agency, which is known by its Spanish acronym CONAE. The satellite is created to provide radar imagery to help emergency responders and monitor the environment, including the collection of soil moisture measurements.
The Saocom-1A launch places SpaceX one mission away from tying its record of 18 launches in one year, set in 2017.
The satellite is the first of two that will be used for emergency management and for land monitoring.
