SpaceX Delivers Echostar XXIII Into Orbit

Hawthorne-based SpaceX successfully launched a communications satellite, EchoStar XXIII, into orbit early Thursday morning. SpaceX launched one of its Falcon rockets into space at 2:00 am EDT on Thursday morning, after a delay earlier in the week due to high winds. The morning launch itself was shifted about a half an hour, again due to high upper altitude winds. SpaceX launched the EchoStar XXIII communications satellite into Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
