CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX has launched the most powerful satellite satellite in the US ever built.
The Falcon 9 rocket fired from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Sunday, raising the satellite to orbit.
The satellite was supposed to rise on Tuesday, but the fears about the rockets, and then the weather, delayed the flight.
Heather Wilson, air force secretary, claims that the next-generation GPS satellite is three times more accurate than previous versions and eight times better in the fight against jamming. This is the first of the series and called Vespucci after the 15th century Italian explorer who calculated the circumference of the Earth within a radius of 50 miles (80 kilometers).
It was the 21st and last event of the SpaceX magazine, a company record.
