The Falcon 9 booster for the Anasis II mission is a historically creative rocket. It was a booster used to deliver NASA astronauts to the ISS in May.

SpaceX has had an unfortunate run of Falcon 9 launches recently, with both a Starlink launch and the launch of the Anasis II mission delayed for the past 12 days.

Anasis-II is a South Korean military satellite that was originally scheduled to be launched on July 14. But SpaceX announced that it was pushing back the blast “to take a closer look at the second step, changing hardware if necessary” just a day before launch. SpaceX also had launched its latest Starlink launch on July 8 and then again on July 11.

On Sunday, Elon Musk’s space airline announced that the Anasis II mission would now be launched on Monday, July 20th.

The Anasen II mission will take off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The new launch window opens at 14:00 PT (17:00 ET) on Monday 20 July and closes just under four hours later.

You can watch the broadcast directly via SpaceX’s YouTube channel below. It usually starts streaming about 15 minutes before launch.

If it happens before the Starlink mission, which is currently awaiting a new launch date, it will be SpaceX’s 12th launch this year, the 90th flight of a Falcon 9 and the second overall for this particular booster, which first flew in May to NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken deliver to the International Space Station – the first time a commercial company has done so. Ergo, it has little history.

The payload, Anasis-II, is South Korea’s first military communications satellite. Due to its military use, there is not much information about it, but in fact it is based on the Eurostar E3000 satellite bus, according to the Everyday Astronaut.
