SpaceX Launches another Satellite

SpaceX has launched another Falcon 9 rocket successfully to meet its goal of 24 total missions for the year. With less than 3 months to go, the company is on the right track as it has successfully completed its 20th launch of the year.

The latest launch of Falcon 9 contained 10 communications satellites for Iridium Communications Inc. to low-earth orbit. According to the company, the satellites will start deploying one hour following the launch and as of now, the company has landed the first stage of the rocket in the Pacific Ocean for future reuse.

The company will launch another rocket this Wednesday as it expects to deliver a high-powered communication satellite for customers EchoStar Corp. and SES SA.
