Successful SpaceX Launch Friday Morning

Homemade Rocket

The newly sent satellites are part of 75 Iridium Next satellite constellation of which total 50 satellites have been successfully deployed i.e 40 in 2017 and 10 satellites on Friday, March 30.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying 10 satellites for Iridium Communications has blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Iridium confirmed shortly before noon that all 10 satellites had reached orbit and transmitted signals.

"This is the first approval of a US -licensed satellite constellation to provide broadband services using a new generation of low-Earth orbit satellite technologies", the Federal Communications Commission said in a statement. Each set consists of 10 satellites, with a total of 75 planned.

SpaceX said no such restrictions will be imposed on its next launch, an April 2 cargo mission to the International Space Station.

Christians Celebrate Good Friday
Hundreds of people from around the community gathered at the church to witness the arrest, trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Some people fast for the whole day, some exclude meat from their diet and some take part in parades and activities among others.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. launched a rocket carrying 10 Iridium Communications Inc. satellites to orbit early Friday, its fifth in a series of eight launches contracted for the communications company as it builds its NEXT constellation network.

The Falcon 9 rocket being used for the launch was previously used in October for an Iridium satellite mission, and it was successfully recovered for re-use. As SpaceX brings about a new variation of the Falcon 9 booster, known as "Block 5", older models are being discarded through expendable missions.

Matt Desch, CEO at Iridium posted a statement saying that the company has already crossed the mark of one million subscribers and counting just when SpaceX was preparing to launch the satellites into the orbit.

Iridium, based in McLean, Virginia, provides mobile voice and data communications. Once complete, the constellation will consist of 66 active satellites, nine orbiting spares and six ground spares.

The company said an update to its privacy policy and terms of service will be coming soon, but would not give further details. Speaking to media on Thursday, Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "We are very tough when it comes to data protection in India".

Mr. Steven, a boat deployed by SpaceX to snag falling parts with a giant seaborne net, failed to retrieve the $6 million nose cone, a method Musk has been trying to ideal with previous launches as well.

"GPS guided parafoil twisted, so fairing impacted water at high speed", Musk tweeted.

However, unlike a Falcon 9 first stage that has a dedicated engine that lands it on a drone ship or a landing pad, the fairing does not have engines that can direct it toward a target. "Doing helo drop tests in next few weeks to solve".

Astronomers Discover a Transparent, Seemingly Impossible Galaxy Without Dark Matter In It
They can't agree on what it's made of , how much a single particle weighs, or the best way to construct a Play-Doh diorama of it. Finding a total lack of dark matter might also, paradoxically, give scientists evidence for the existence of the unusual stuff.
