SpaceX launched an environmental satellite, Sunday, August 30, that will help Argentina’s agricultural industry.
The SAOCOM 1B launched aboard a two-stage Falcon 9 rocket from the Space Launch Complex in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Two smaller payloads, the Tyvak-0172 nano-satellite and PlanetiQ’s GNOMES-1 satellite piggybacked on the launch.
