Falcon 9 / JCSat-16

Gearing up for its next commercial mission, SpaceX is looking at another heavy satellite delivery to a high-energy Geostationary Transfer Orbit. Falcon 9 is set for liftoff with the JCSat-16 satellite on Sunday, August 14, 2016 during a two-hour window opening at 5:26 UTC, 1:26 a.m. local time at the Cape Canaveral Launch Site. Due to the energy involved in this mission, the first stage will face a very tough re-entry en-route to its experimental landing on the Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship.
