The satellite will provide TV, internet and other services , predominantly be used for video, including the expansion of ultra-high definition signals in the region, Latin America. The landing took place about eight minutes after launch. This was the world’s first reflight of an orbital class rocket. The rocket’s first stage previously lifted off in April 2016. “It shows you can fly and refly an orbit-class booster, which is the most expensive part of the rocket. This is ultimately a huge revolution in spaceflight,” Musk said after laubch on a SpaceX  webcast. The next goal for SpaceX will be to launch a rocket twice in 24 hours. The ship which received the rocket, usually stationed several hundred miles off the coast of Florida, is expected to return to its home at Port Canaveral with the Falcon 9 a few days after launch. SpaceX intends to re-fly payload fairings just as it does Falcon 9 first stages.
