SpaceX Launches Iridium-8 Mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base
SpaceX successfully launched the eighth and final set of satellites for Iridium’s next-generation global satellite constellation, Iridium NEXT, on January 11, 2019, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Falcon 9's first stage delivered the second stage to its targeted orbit followed by deployment of all 10 Iridium NEXT satellites. Following stage separation, the first stage of Falcon 9 successfully landed on SpaceX's "Just Read the Instructions" drone-ship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
