Description

To mark the launch of SES-8, we've charted the satellite's 1416 km (880 mi) journey from its manufacturer's location in Dulles, Virginia -- Orbital's production facility -- to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. SES-8 is due to be launched later today, using a launch vehicle designed and built by SpaceX. In this short video, hear SES' Quoc Tran talk us through the journey.
