Local time 28 Feb 17 at 12:00am EST
SpaceX will return to flight at Cape Canaveral with a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Echostar 23 communications satellite. The difference this time is that they will launch from Kennedy Space Center and not the Air Force Base.
The Falcon 9 will mark the inaugural flight from the repurposed Space Shuttle launch pad SLC-39A which SpaceX is leasing from NASA. There will not be a booster landing attempt for this mission.
The Echostar 23 satellite will provide satellite TV services to Brazil.
