A SpaceX Falcon 9 Will Launch The EchoStar 23 Satellite.

The EchoStar 23 satellite is set to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida sometime late February from launch complex 39A. SpaceX recently remodeled the historic launch pad to accommodate their Falcon 9 and Falcon 9 heavy rockets.

The EchoStar 23 satellite is a communications satellite for the EchoStar Corp. EchoStar 23, based on a spare platform from the canceled CMBStar 1 satellite program, will provide direct to home TV services for Brazil.
