SpaceX is extremely proud of its next victory: Elon Musk’s men have made successful rocket launch again. On Saturday, they launched a two-stage rocket with the satellite into the orbit.

The space cargo contractor SpaceX made another its dream come true on Saturday: the two-stage rocket went successfully into the Eath orbit. according to the schedule, the SpaceX rocket lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 9:54 AM local time. The rocket was carrying a satellite payload on behalf of Iridium Communications.

The first stage booster came back to the Pacific in ten minutes after the rocket took off. This successful launch became a huge milestone for Elon Musk’s corporation. The previous attempt in September wasn’t lucky, so, recent launch became a real award for SpaceX when rocket blew up on the launchpad, incinerating a Facebook satellite.

Iridium plans another nine satellite launches – all via Musk’s space-trucking kit – in order to replace its existing satellite constellations, which provide voice and data communications. Each launch will carry 10 satellites.
