Space Coast Area HomesAnother rocket launch is set for Tuesday evening at Cape Canaveral. An Atlas V rocket is planned to blast off at 7:43 p.m. on Tuesday.  There is a 44 minute launch window, so that time can vary some. The rocket will have 5 solid rocket boosters and a Russian RD-180 engine that will put out 2.5 million pounds of thrust.

This launch will carry a Navy satellite into space.  The launch of this communications satellite weighing in at 7.5 tons, will put the satellite into orbit at 22,000 miles above the Earth.

In additional news, Elon Musk, of Tessla Motor fame, has confirmed that his company will again make an attempt to land a Falcon 9 rock booster on a floating platform in the Atlantic. Personally, I love what Mr. Musk is doing, as his success will allow rocket boosters to be re-used, thus cutting down on the large amount of space junk orbiting our planet.  SpaceX made their first attempt of this type of landing earlier this month.  The rocket did hit the landing platform, but did so in a manner that it broke the platform apart.  I will let you know when the next SpaceX attemptis made.  In the mean time, keep your eyes peeled for another gorgeous Space Coast launch on Tuesday evening!
