Boeing built the Amos-17 satellite that is designed to provide broadcast broadband connectivity services across the sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Asia. SpaceX used this booster on two missions prior to this evenings. Teslstar-19 mission, and the Es'hail-2 mission. SpaceX did not land the booster at the end of this mission, using the extra landing fuel to push the 6,500 kg. satellite into orbit. SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted shortly after the mission that a ship successfully captured one of the fairing halves used tonight.
