The Atlas V rocket launched out of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station around 6:28 a.m. Friday.
Officials say the launch window was from 6:08 a.m. to 6:28 a.m.
Officials say the Atlas V rocket launched a satellite for Mexico's Ministry of Communications and Transportation.
Officials say the satellite will provide secure communications for Mexico's national security needs in addition to providing communications to rural zones, as a complement to other existing networks. These satellite communication services include education and health programs, voice, data, video, and internet services.
