SpaceX plans to launch the Eutelsat 10B communications satellite on 2022-11-22 at 02:57 UTC, which will be in the evening of the 21st in western hemisphere time zones. This will be the eleventh and final flight of Falcon 9 booster B1049 with a turn-around time of 434 days since its last flight. The launch will be from Space Launch Complex 40 in Florida. Weather is currently forecast as 30% favourable for launch.
The satellite will be injected into a super-synchronous geostationary transfer orbit for eventual service at the Eutelsat 10° East slot. It replaces Eutelsat 10A, which is being retired at the end of 2023. The super-synchronous orbit reduces the amount of the satellite payload’s own fuel that must be burned to reach its service orbit and thus increases its service lifetime. Boosting the payload to this orbit requires the Falcon 9 first stage to burn fuel which would otherwise be used to recover the booster, resulting in the booster’s being expended on this flight. To reduce weight and improve performance, the landing legs, grid fins, and reaction control thrusters have been removed from the booster.
