The rocket is set to blast off at 6:53 p.m. from Kennedy Space Center.

The Falcon 9 booster to be launched on Wednesday made its maiden voyage on February, 2017, on a mission to resupply the ISS.

SpaceX launched 10 communication satellites into Earth low orbit on Monday, then watched its spent Falcon 9 first-stage rocket booster stick a landing on a drone ship in the Pacific Ocean.

SpaceX will deliver a communications satellite created to broadcast television over the US and parts of the Caribbean this evening. SpaceX sent up two earlier batches of 10, in January and June, as part of an eight-launch deal with Iridium.

There is a 2-hour launch window.

SpaceX will tonight (October 11, weather permitting) launch a condominium satellite operated by SES and EchoStar. The launch and flight will be streamed live. SpaceX has carried out 14 flights this year so far, and if Wednesday's mission is successful, it would allow the company to achieve its goal of 20 flights by the end of the year.

SpaceX's live coverage of the mission will begin 15 minutes before blastoff. For a nascent technology offering as complex as a reused rocket, this ought to assuage any doubts that SpaceX is not utterly committed to its pursuit of affordable access to orbit by way of launch vehicle reusability.

The powerful first stage will fall away after launch and is scheduled to land down-range onto SpaceX's floating barge, Of course I still love you.

If everything runs smoothly, the satellite will be deployed 36 minutes after liftoff.
