SpaceX Is Back With A succesfull New Mission After September’s Launchpad Explosion!

SpaceX successfully returns to launch with Iridium-1 NEXT Falcon 9 mission after last year launchpad explosion!


SpaceX has succeeded in launch a Falcon 9 rocket from California, its first launch since a Falcon 9 rocket exploded on a launch pad in pre-flight procedures in September 2016. The launch took place at 9:54 AM PT Saturday; It’s a huge success for SpaceX, which has had to delay its launch schedule since the explosion.

SpaceX’s second-stage also successfully reached low-earth orbit, where it will begin the next stage of the mission, deploying Iridium’s 10 satellites. This mission is the first in a series for client Iridium, that will see it deploy 70 satellites in a network for voice and data communication. It’s also a green light for SpaceX in terms of the company pursuing its aggressive launch schedule.

This year, SpaceX completed only 8 of 20 launches, due to the September 1 explosion that halted all new launches for severel months which make the company loses more than 250 million US dollars! SpaceX successfully began deploying the Iridium satellites as of around 11 AM PT/2 PM ET. All satellites were successfully deployed as of 11:13 AM PT / 2:12 PM PT, signalling a successful mission for the space company!
