SpaceX will be launching the JCSAT-18 satellite to Geostationary Orbit (GEO) on top of SpaceX’s work-horse rocket, the Falcon 9. The Falcon 9 will launch from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, in Florida. The booster supporting this mission (B1056.3) flew on CRS-17 on May 4th, 2019, and again on CRS-18 on July 25th, 2019. The booster is going to be recovered on SpaceX’s droneship, Of Course I Still Love You. The fairings are going to be recovered on Go Ms. Chief and Go Ms. Tree, which left port on 12/14/19, heading over 700km downrange.
