SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9v1.2FT Block 5 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA, at 0257 GMT on 23 November. The vehicle was carrying Eutelsat 10B, a C- and Ku-band high throughput communication satellite. This was the final trip for the B1049 first stage which was flown as expendable on this launch – its 11th flight.

The 5,650 kg spacecraft was built by Thales Alenia Space using its SpaceBus NEO 100 “all electric” platform. It was launched into a transfer orbit and will use its thrusters to circularise itself and remove the inclination to go into a final geostationary orbit. It will be located over 10 degrees east and will provide coverage to Europe, the Middle East and Africa, plus air and sea routes from the North Atlantic to the Middle East, Indian Ocean, Africa and a large part of the Atlantic Ocean.
