From what location did SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch for its EchoStar XXIII mission?



Kennedy Space Center




SpaceX has been in the rocket and spacecraft game since it … launched … in 2002 (sorry). On March 16, 2017, the Falcon 9 blasted off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. What exactly is the EchoStar XXIII mission, you ask? Well, the XXIII is actually a commercial communications satellite for the EchoStar Corporation. And the satellite’s destination? It was deposited to a geostationary transfer orbit … so don’t go looking for it on the Moon’s surface with your telescope. You won’t find it! Source: SpaceX
