Here's how to watch SpaceX's Newly launch attempt live Video

SpaceX is planning to launch its fifth rocket of the year this Friday at 5:40 pm ET.
The Falcon 9 rocket will be launching out of Cape Canaveral, Florida, transport a communications satellite called that weighs nearly 7,000 lbs (3175kg). As of Tuesday afternoon, weather conditions appear good quality for the launch.
Once up, the satellite, which was billed by aerospace producer Orbital ATK for Thailand’s first satellite operator Thaicom PLC, will give TV and internet services to Southeast Asia.

SpaceX’s track proof for launches has been nearly flawless this year, with four winning launches and three winning landings (and retrievals!) of the first stage of the rockets. One of those success took place on land in December; two extra happened in April and Mayat sea.
SpaceX will once once more attempt to land the first period of the rocket on a drone ship in the Atlantic. If it succeed, it will be:
    The fourth successful recovery of the first stage of a Falcon 9 rocket
    The 3rd Winning at-sea landing
    The second successful landing after launching to the very high geostationary orbit, extra than 22,000 miles (35,405 km) above Earth’s equator
Throughout SpaceX’s last launch, Elon Musk admit he wasn’t sure if they’d stick the landing, citing the extreme heat and speed the rocket faced upon reentry into Earth’s ambiance.
But it did. And though it was a hugely surprising achievement, the re-landed first period suffered "maximum damage", meaning it’s not leaving back to space again anytime soon. Instead, SpaceX plans to use the rocket for earth tests.

Perfect the landing of the first period of its Falcon 9 rockets brings SpaceX closer to its ultimate goal: Creation these rockets reusable, and thereby radically cutting the cost of spaceflight. This launch will give it yet another chance to prove that it can achieve this.
A story in Florida Today states that the weather conditions for the flight are looking to be near-perfect, with US Air Force meteorologists predict a 90 percent chance of favourable setting for launch.
