Falcon 9/Formosat-5: Vandenberg, not KSC – Satellite News Digest

The launch site for the Falcon 9 carrying Formosat-5 was of course Vandenberg Air Force Base, not Kennedy Space Center. And the satellite (as its name suggests) was launched for the Republic of China, commonly known as Formosa or Taiwan – not South Korea. Thanks to everybody who wrote in to correct the mistakes.
