The Falcon 9 rocket being used for Friday's launch was previously used in October for an Iridium satellite mission, and it was successfully recovered for re-use.
If you want to watch the launch live, SpaceX will be streaming it via its various video portals, including YouTube.
The $3-billion United States project is scheduled for completion this year, with a total of 75 new satellites in orbit. You can also assemble a rocket in a game-like AR interactive for an up-close look at what it takes to launch and land a rocket. SpaceX did not attempt to make another recovery of the rocket's first stage after Friday's launch.
SpaceX now has U.S. permission to fly 4,425 satellites in a swarming constellation to deliver internet service to consumers below-more than tripling the number of active satellites in orbit around the earth.
SpaceX was chosen to launch a constellation of 75 satellites in eight missions. He further added that they would be working towards adding live views from the orbit in the future and were in discussion with the NOAA to lift these restrictions.
"NOAA recently asserted that the cameras on the second stage, which are used for engineering purposes, qualify as a "remote sensing space system", thereby requiring a provisional license so we could fly on time", SpaceX said. With Friday's launch, there were 50 newer-style Iridium satellites in space. In total, 81 satellites are being built, with 66 in the operational constellation, nine serving as on-orbit spares and six as ground spares, reports Iridium Communications.
"Iridium is the only mobile voice and data satellite communications network that spans the entire globe".
As the nose cone - also called a fairing - fell back toward Earth, the parafoils that were supposed to slow its decent became tangled, CNNMoney reported citing SpaceX CEO Elon Musk's tweet. He elaborated by pointing out that Iridium had to wait for days to get their satellites launched into the higher orbit last year, however, this year, the space agency has throttled its performance and has been accomplishment major feat its successful launches. Reacting to the issue, Musk said that helicopter drop tests would be conducted to solve the problem.
