“The SpaceX rocket that launched the company’s first astronaut mission for NASA last month fired up its engines once more Saturday (July 11) in a test that sets the stage for the launch of South Korea’s first military satellite this week.”
“The Falcon 9 rocket ignited its nine first-stage Merlin engines briefly in a so-called static fire test at Space Launch Complex-40 of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The standard SpaceX rocket test clears the way for the planned launch of the Anasis-II military communications satellite for the South Korean government on Tuesday (July 14) at 5 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT).” –space.com
