"Iridium is the only satellite communications network that spans the entire globe and Iridium NEXT is one of the largest "tech upgrades" in space history", SpaceX said in a statement. The rocket carried Iridium 8 satellites into orbit. Including new boosters that have arrived at their launch pads but have yet to launch, SpaceX's skilled production and testing team managed to ship, test, and deliver an impressive 1 to 1.5 Falcon 9 boosters, 1-2 upper stages, and 3-4 payload fairing halves on average each month.
SpaceX still plans to launch its Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 7:31 a.m. on Friday, as long as the weather holds.
Friday's launch was SpaceX's eighth and final in a series for Iridium, which is headquartered in Virginia. The rocket's first stage landed safely on SpaceX's "Just Read the Instructions" droneship in the Pacific Ocean.
It was previously used in a launch last September from Florida.
Regardless, this ultimately means that SpaceX's reusable Falcon fleet could feature as many as 12-15 boosters capable of something like 5-10 additional launches each by the second half of fourth quarter of 2019.

If successful, Iridium will have a total of 75 new satellites in orbit, including nine spares.
