Falcon 9 - Hispasat 30W-6

SpaceX's Falcon 9 is set for a midnight-hour liftoff from Florida's Cape Canaveral on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 with the Hispasat 30W-6 satellite to join Hispasat's fleet of Geostationary Telecommunications Satellites. The mission was forced to switch from a booster recovery flight to expendable mode due to rough seas in the Atlantic Ocean that would not permit SpaceX's Drone Ship to safely catch the Falcon 9 first stage.
