SpaceX launches 10 satellites for Iridium mobile network

A total of 75 satellites are planned for launch, so that nine will be in-orbit spares and six as ground spares.

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying the SES 11/EchoStar 105 communications satellite is scheduled to lift off from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida at 6:53 p.m. ET (2053 GMT) today.

Fox, Blue Sky Fly with Animated Short-Inspired Spy Caper
The feature-length film is a Fox Animation production , with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment overseeing the project. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way.

Yesterday's launch, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, put satellites number 21 to 30 into low-Earth orbit.

Over the hour that followed, the Falcon 9 second stage released Iridium's satellites, one by one. On 25 June, they launched the second batch during SpaceX's "weekend doubleheader" when it launched back-to-back Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings in just 48 hours. Grainy video showed the rocket standing upright in the predawn darkness on the droneship, named "Just Read the Instructions". Up next on the docket of launches is SpaceX's SES-11 mission and third commercial reuse of a Falcon 9, now expected to lift off from Kennedy Space Center, Florida on the evening of October 11. While still experimental, it is nearly certain that SpaceX also attempted to recover the vehicle's payload fairing, created to autonomously parachute onto what Elon Musk has affectionately deemed a giant "bouncy castle" floating in the ocean.
