The Falcon 9 rocket launched in Florida with a third-generation GPS satellite

The Falcon 9 launch vehicle launched in Florida with a GPS III-3 navigation satellite and SpaceX is broadcasting the launch live.

The launch of the launch vehicle took place at 16.11 on the East coast of the United States from the Cape Canaveral spaceport. The device, created by Lockheed Martin, will enter a constellation of 31 GPS geolocation satellites, including two new-generation GPS III devices that meet the needs of the US armed forces and civilian users.

The launch of the device was supposed to take place in April but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. SpaceX has been carrying out launches for the US air force since 2018.
