SpaceX is hoping to launch the 7,000-pound Thaicom 8 into space on Thursday at 5:40 pm Eastern. From its geosynchronous orbit, the satellite will beam television and internet signals into Southeast Asia.
After the launch, the Falcon 9 rocket's first stage booster will turn around and attempt to land on an autonomous barge in the Atlantic Ocean.
If the landing goes, it'll be SpaceX's fourth successful landing--the first was on land and the second and third touched down on the drone ship. They might need a bigger hangar soon.
