Falcon 1 Set to Lift Off With Malaysian Satellite on Tuesday


SpaceX is set to launch a Falcon 1 rocket with Malaysia’s RazakSAT remote sensing satellite from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands on Tuesday local time (Monday in the United States).

SpaceX’s website indicates that “the launch window opens Monday, July 13th and extends through Tuesday, July 14th, with a daily window to open at 4:00 p.m. (PDT) / 7:00 p.m. (EDT).”

This will be the fifth launch of the Falcon 1 rocket, which has succeeded once in four previous attempts.
