It is reported that SpaceX completed its first Falcon 9 rocket launch mission in California in 2019 this morning, and put all 10 satellites of its long-term customer Iridium into low earth orbit. Later, SpaceX recovered the Falcon 9 rocket using an unmanned ship, bringing the total number of successful recoveries to 33.
SpaceX today's launch mission is called Iridium-8, which will put the last satellites to orbit for the NEXT project of Iridium Satellite Company. SpaceX has signed a contract with Iridium to launch all 75 orbiting satellites for the satellite network, which will provide low Earth orbit signal coverage. The satellite network is the replacement and upgrading of Iridium's original satellite network, which was originally composed of satellites launched between 1997 and 2002.
SpaceX launches 10 new satellites in batches from California regularly, and only 5 satellites are launched once. Today's launch will complete the Iridium network. About 10 minutes after launch, SpaceX tried to ensure that its Falcon 9 rocket landed on an unmanned ship in the ocean. SpaceX's last mission in December was to launch a GPS satellite for the U.S. Air Force. Because of its confidentiality, the company chose not to recover its Falcon 9 rocket after launch. Before that flight, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket attempted to land on the Florida coast, but unfortunately fell into the ocean. For SpaceX, fortunately, today's rocket recovery is very successful. The Falcon 9 rocket launched the Telstar 18 VANTAGE satellite from Florida in September 2018 and landed on an unmanned ship in the Atlantic Ocean. The successful recovery of the rocket marks the 33rd successful recovery of the Falcon 9 rocket propeller by SpaceX.
