SpaceX aims to launch the first six of Orbcomm’s 17 OG2 satellites on 10 May from Cape Canaveral, with a backup date of 11 May. SpaceX will launch the remaining satellites in the constellation later this year. SpaceX is expected to continue to conduct rocket reusability tests on future launches, like the one recently done as part of its mission to the ISS, as long as those leave enough leftover fuel to accomplish the complicated re-entry maneuvers. This will be dependent on the weight of the satellite, since some will be so heavy they will require more of a boost from the Falcon 9 rocket. SpaceX did not indicate which launches would or would not be suitable. (Image Credit: Wikimedia)
