Titusville, Fla. – SpaceX is set to launch a satellite into orbit from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The private corporation originally planned to launch the BulgariaSat-1 satellite on June 19, but weather conditions were not favorable.

SpaceX will attempt to land the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket launching BulgariaSat-1 on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean. The first stage was previously used to launch the Iridium-1 satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
