This is the SES-9 Technical Webcast which will only include shots of the rocket and our countdown net audio. There will be long periods of silence. We will no longer be including John Insprucker's status updates per this Reddit thread: www.reddit.com/r/spacex/comments/48ha0l/spacex_technical_webcast_questions/
SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will deliver SES-9, a commercial communications satellite for SES, to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). SES is a world-leading satellite operator that provides satellite-enabled communications services to broadcasters, Internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, and business and governmental organizations worldwide using its fleet of more than 50 geostationary satellites. SpaceX is targeting an evening launch of SES-9 from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The approximately 90-minute launch window opens on March 4 at 11:35 pm UTC. The satellite will be deployed approximately 31 minutes after liftoff.
