The launch is taking off with 10 iridium next satellites tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 4-39 a-m. The Iridium network is comprised of six polar orbiting planes, each containing 11 crosslinked satellites for a total of 66 in the operational constellation.

The payload includes 10 Iridium-NEXT communications satellites.

"This historic constellation refresh is one launch away from completion", said Matt Desch, chief executive at Iridium.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched 10 Iridium Next satellites to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), even under harsh weather conditions. Overall, SpaceX has launched 13 rockets this year (including the maiden flight of the Falcon Heavy in February 2018) and is expect to launch almost as many before the year concludes.

81 second-gen Iridium-NEXT satellites were ordered by Iridium in June 2010 for this project, and the first launch was planned for early 2015 during that time. On the opposite coast, SpaceX's second Block 5 Falcon 9 booster (B1047) completed its own successful launch and landing, lofting the heaviest commercial satellite to ever reach orbit (Telstar 19V). Iridium enables connections between people, organizations and assets to and from anywhere, in real time. The company has a major development program underway for its next-generation network - Iridium NEXT. John Glenn in the USA state of Ohio. We'll embed the stream below when it's available.

The still-in-development Ariane 6 will be meant to compete with SpaceX's cheaper reusable launch systems, though it is likely that by the time it debuts the latter company will have significantly bypassed it on cost savings. There is no assurance that Iridium's expectations will be realized.
