Iridium payload released from Falcon 9 rocket in orbit

That brings the organization's aggregate arrivals this year to 11. It's the first of two launches the organization intends to endeavor this week on opposite coasts of the US. This morning, SpaceX is set to launch another of its Falcon 9 rockets from Vandenberg, California, sending 10 satellites into space for communication organization Iridium.

The present launch is commonplace to SpaceX since the organization has essentially done it sometime recently.

The constellation will eventually comprise 66 operational satellites, plus orbital spares. The organization launched the initial 10 of these tests in January and another bunch of 10 in June.

Each of the three launches has put 10 new satellites into orbit, gradually replacing the old Iridium satellites, still in service after almost two decades.

After dispatching the rocket's second stage and payload on a path to orbit, Falcon 9 1041 performed a feat that now nearly feels routine, landing with dead-center accuracy several hundred miles off of the West coast aboard the drone ship Just Read The Instructions.

The first stage of this Falcon 9 has flown once before: On Feb. 19, it helped launch SpaceX's Dragon cargo capsuleon an uncrewed resupply run to the International Space Station for NASA.

The satellite launched on Wednesday will provide high-definition broadcasts to the USA and other parts of North America.

Musk celebrated the launching of the satellites into space on Instagram.

The Falcon 9's liftoff was one of three launches scheduled in the course of 24 hours. SpaceX will launch all 75, in another four launches of 10 at a time and a final launch of just five.

SpaxeX has only launched what it calls "flight proven" boosters twice before, but the company hopes a successful mission today will prove that the practice is reliable.
