Falcon 9 - PAZ

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket is set for a pre-sunrise liftoff from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base on the company's fourth mission of the year. Re-using the first stage from the August 2017 mission with FormoSat, Thursday's flight will deliver to orbit the PAZ radar satellite for operator Hisdesat and a pair of prototype satellites for SpaceX's Starlink broadband constellation. Flying with grid fins but without landing legs, Booster 1038.2 will go through flight testing after stage separation before finding a watery grave in the Pacific Ocean.
