BulgariaSat-1 Mission

SpaceX is targeting launch of BulgariaSat-1 from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The two-hour launch window opens on Friday, June 23, at 2:10 p.m. EDT, or 18:10 UTC, with a backup launch opportunity on Saturday, June 24, at 2:10 p.m. BulgariaSat-1 is the first geostationary communications satellite in Bulgaria’s history.

Falcon 9’s first stage for the BulgariaSat-1 mission previously supported the Iridium-1 mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base in January of this year. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will attempt a landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
