Watch: SpaceX Launches 10 Satellites at Once [Video]

SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket on Sunday with 10 Iridium communications satellites intended for low Earth Orbit.

The satellites are the second set of a next generation 75-satellite constellation called Iridium NEXT.

The satellites deployed about an hour after launch.

The first stage returned to Earth and landed on Just Read the Instructions, one of SpaceX’s two autonomous drone ships.

Iridium is a global leader in mobile voice and data satellite communications.
