A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched 10 Iridium Next satellites to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), even under harsh weather conditions. The company also intends to "catch" in a special grid mounted on the ship Mr Steven, the nose cone of the rocket.

Hawthorne-based SpaceX Wednesday launched a rocket carrying 10 communications satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The Space X launch utilizing a Falcon 9 rocket will be the company's subsequent of the week succeeding a launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Sunday, July 22. After today's launch, the number of satellites will reach 65 of the 75 planned. Only one more launch of 10 satellites remains until the Iridium NEXT network is completed, ushering in a new era of capabilities, like the Iridium Certus broadband service and Aireon real-time aircraft surveillance system.

Roseanne apologizes directly to Valerie Jarrett, then mocks her looks on 'Hannity'
Barr repeatedly told Hannity that to her, the tweet was a political statement and had nothing to do with race. She described her shock when she first found out that the tweet had been interpreted as a racial epithet.

The rocket has an instantaneous launch window scheduled for 4:39:30 am PDT.

Weather conditions in the area of the ship was too harsh: the wind was so strong that it blew the parachute with a canopy, and he again fell into the water.

After the Falcon 9's nine first stage Merlin 1D engines ignited, their combined 1.7 million pounds (7,600 kilonewtons) of thrust propelled the vehicle off the pad to send its 15,600-pound (7,076-kilogram) payload skyward.

"They did see the payload fairing coming down, but they were not able to catch it in the net", Insprucker said during the broadcast about 50 minutes after liftoff.

The primary goal will be to deliver a group of satellites into orbit for its customer Iridium, a satellite operator that's building a next-generation communications network. It continued on a parabolic trajectory, performing a series of burns along the way, to land on the drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You", downrange in the Atlantic Ocean.

Iridium is the only mobile voice and data satellite communications network that spans the entire globe.
