VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE – SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 4 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Sunday at 4:25:14 p.m. EDT; 1:25:14 p.m. PDT.
The Falcon 9 rocket launched 10 next-generation Iridium NEXT satellites – they are satellites 11 through 20 of what will be a 70-satellite constellation to boost Iridum’s mobile communications network.
The first 10 satellites launched earlier this year in January.
