Launch Date: NET October 4 Launch time: 1306 GMT (9:06 a.m. EDT; 6:06 a.m. PDT) Launch site: SLC-4E, Vandenberg Air Force Base, California A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch 10 satellites for the Iridium next mobile communications fleet. This is the third out of eight launches for Iridium. An additional launch may occur due to failure of a number of the satellites already launched. This will be another ASDS landing attempt on JRTI as with all of the Iridium launches. All the current Iridium launches are contracted for new rockets. If there is an additional launch necessary, I would almost expect Iridium to use a previously flown booster to lower costs.
