U.S. Air Force Still Deciding if Initial Falcon 9 v1.1 Flights Count Toward Certfication | SpaceNews.com | military | Scoop.it

(SpaceX) expect credit for the flight despite being unable to reignite the rocket’s upper-stage engine in a test that followed deployment of the satellite payload. They also expect the service to count the following mission, a Dec. 3 flight for satellite operator SES, Emily Shanklin, a SpaceX spokeswoman, said in a Dec. 23 email.
