Watch SpaceX Launch 10 Satellites Into Orbit

SpaceX Launch Postponed title

SpaceX successfully launched the Iridium-5 Falcon 9 Mission on Friday, March 30, 7:13 a.m. PDT.

'We will be attempting a recovery for one of the halves of the fairing on our recovery ship, Mr Steven'. SpaceX made it clear that it will do experimental maneuver on the third stage, but it doesn't have any plans to recover it as it is replacing the older generation of rockets with newer ones. The GPS-guided parafoils meant to slow it down grew tangled as it descended back toward earth, causing the cone to crash into the water at a high rate of speed, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet. It was unsuccessful in recovering it, because the fairing just missed the boat by a few hundred yards.

Mr. Steven is the ship that SpaceX will use to try to recapture the nose cone or fairing as it is called.

SpaceX announced the successful deployment of all 10 satellites. These satellites are destined to work with other 65 satellites of which total 50 satellites have already been sent to the orbit. The contract between the two companies will result in the launch of 75 Iridium Next satellites.

"This is the first approval of a USA -licensed satellite constellation to provide broadband services using a new generation of low-Earth orbit satellite technologies", the Federal Communications Commission said in a statement. He further added that the target was anticipated, however, the milestone was achieved much before than predicted.

The Iridium-5 NEXT Mission marked the fifth set of 10 satellites launched for the NEXT global satellite constellation. The booster that was used in this mission was also used to launch 10 other Iridium satellites on October 9 during the Iridium-3 mission.

To date, Iridium has completed five launches of 10 Iridium NEXT satellites, all with SpaceX from Vandenberg Air Force Base. This is most likely due to NOAA' action of issuing a license for SpaceX which includes certain conditions related to their live streaming capabilities from space. Rest 9 satellites are sanctioned as spares for when if any satellites go impaired or malfunctions.

Iridium confirmed the health of the satellites in a post-launch release, saying all 10 "have successfully communicated with the Iridium Satellite Network Operations Center and are preparing to begin testing".

This isn't the end of the road for the partnership between Iridium and SpaceX.
