Spacex will launch a 5400 kilogram SES-11 satellite into geosynchronous orbit using a previously used first stage. Launching Dragons to low Earth orbit (LEO) makes for a considerably cooler and less damaging recovery for Falcon 9 first stages, likely leading to an easier refurbishment process. Spacex previously launched SES-10 with a reused first stage that launched SpaceX’s CRS-8 mission.
