A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifts off from Vandenberg Air Force Base with the first Iridium Next satellites. "Despite the hard weather conditions, the first stage-upper stage of the Falcon 9 landed", - stated in the message.

The net affixed to Mr. Steven was upgraded since the last attempt to recover a fairing in May. 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.

"Weather in the Pacific is bad. We will continue to attempt that in the future as we learn to how to bring fairings back and then reuse them". The company says that can use Falcon 9 Block 5 more than ten times. An additional launch of 10 satellites remains until the Iridium Next network is completed, ushering in a new era of capabilities for the company, like the Iridium Certus broadband service and Aireon real-time aircraft surveillance system.

Earlier it was reported that the company SpaceX will launch an Israeli unmanned spacecraft on the moon. Of the 75 satellites being launched into orbit, 66 will be in operation and nine will be orbiting backups, according to SpaceX.
