The technical issues, severe weather conditions, and even a presidential vice-president's trip have made five attempts before the SpaceX rocket slams the open sky on the road to space.
The company's first national security launch this week has faced some challenges. SpaceX has been dealing with a number of issues while trying to release the Air Force's main GPS satellite from the 40th Cape Canaveral Air Force Base.
SpaceX was scheduled to start work on Tuesday, vice-president Mike Pence looked at the Kennedy Space Center. However, a subject identified by the sensors at the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket was fraudulent. They were re-gathered on Wednesday, and teams had more time to solve the problem.
Thursday, heavy weather and a hurricane stopped the launch. Despite the better weather conditions on Saturday, strong top-level winds still cause another brush.
Pence quit the brush on Tuesday, noting that it was not "the first rodeo", but a priority for security. Donald Trump, Vice President, was in Florida to announce that he had ordered a Cosmic Command, a single combat commander, to control all military operations. The government also plans to develop a new independent military unit, Space Force.
Military operations were at the center of the market. The high-profile load of 10,900 nautical miles around the world was Air Force's GPS III, the first in a new generation of GPS satellites.
One of the 10th generation satellite satellites, which has been ordered by satellite air force three times better, has improved its anti-bumper ability, upgraded to 25 times longer, and is capable of transmitting signals to other international global navigation systems, including the European Galileo systems.
The satellite, created by Lockheed Martin, can eventually be one of the 32 forces that Air Force can order to upgrade existing satellite constellations in the coming years.
