SpaceX Successfully Launches Intelsat 35e Satellite
The SpaceX Falcon 9 launches with the Intelsat 35e satellite onboard.

It was a case of the third time being the charm as SpaceX conducted its 10th launch this year. The Intelsat 35e has separated from the Falcon 9 second stage as expected and is in a good orbit.
From SpaceX:

“SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket successfully delivered Intelsat 35e, a commercial communications satellite, to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). Falcon 9 lifted off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday, July 5, at 7:38 p.m. EDT. The satellite was deployed approximately 32 minutes after launch and the customer has confirmed signal acquisition.”
