A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the Telstar 18 Vantage communications satellite, also known as Apstar 5C, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, during a launch window that starts at 11:28 pm on September 10. Just like the Telstar 19V, the spacecraft hitched a ride into space atop a brand-new "Block 5" booster.
