A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station early Tuesday, ferrying the AsiaSat 8 spacecraft into orbit. The launch took place at 4 a.m. local time (0800 GMT), after a delay of 2.5 hours due to an issue with the rocket's first stage.

The AsiaSat satellite will provide telecom services across a wide swath of Asia, with a payload power of roughly 8,500 watts. Built by Space Systems/Loral, LLC, it is now the most powerful satellite in the AsiaSat fleet, and is expected to have a service life of 15 years.

Another SpaceX launch will attempt to put the AsiaSat 6 satellite into orbit Aug. 26.
