A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the seventh batch of Iridium-NEXT communications satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base from California. The payload will consist of 10 satellites that will be added to the constellation of those already launched.

The Falcon 9 will attempt an offshore landing on their autonomous drone ship 'Just Read The Instructions', and although not confirmed yet, it's expected that SpaceX will make another attempt at a payload fairing recovery with their ‘Catcher’s Mitt’ boat named Mr Steven, something they have attempted a few times prior with limited success.
