SpaceX plans to launch a second used rocket next month for satellite operator Bulgaria Sat.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 launched an Inmarsat communications satellite, its largest payload, into orbit Monday evening from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Weighing in at almost 13,500 pounds atop the rocket, the fourth Inmarsat-5 satellite was the heaviest payload carried by a Falcon 9 yet. Because of the fuel requirement, the Falcon 9 booster will not be recovered, says SpaceX in a statement.

Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have 38 per cent shares each in the private company Young Indian which was floated in late 2010. The media is misrepresenting facts, ' Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi said while addressing a press conference.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2rhP2c8) reports that SpaceX will not try to land and recover the spent booster after it delivers its payload because its weight, 13,000 pounds, requires far too much fuel and would make a landing attempt too hard.

The satellite is the size of a double decker bus. Since SpaceX returned to flight on January 17 of this year, five Falcon 9 rockets have launched. The launch of Inmarsat-5 Flight 4 from Pad 39A is scheduled for Monday, May 15. It was expected to deliver the Inmarsat-5 F4 satellite into space, where it can begin operating more than 22,000 miles above Earth.

One of the biggest reasons for why SpaceX was getting so much flak in the past was due to its number of failed launches and over 70 backlogged missions worth $10 billion just a few years ago, Ars Technica reports.

Static fire test of Falcon 9 completed on May 11. The Inmarsat-5 F4 (or I5F4) comes in at roughly 13,500 lbs (6,123 kg). With the satellite launching into space, in-flight internet would be significantly improved.

I-5 F4 was built by Boeing at their satellite operations facility in El Segundo, CA for Inmarsat.

Previously, three first stage boosters successfully landed there after dispatching satellites into orbit.
