Ten additional Iridium® NEXT satellites have been launched by SpaceX to their orbits - the push to space occurred at 7:13 a.m. today (Friday, March 30, 2018). "This time there was no attempt to recover the first stage but it was to perform a simulated landing over the ocean", said Michael Hammersley, a SpaceX materials engineer serving as launch spokesman. In fact, the rocket that shuttled Iridium's satellites into orbit today was used in the third Iridium launch back on October 9.
During the launch, SpaceX cut the feed due to restrictions from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The launch was rescheduled for Saturday at first but after the issue was resolved the mission was moved back to Friday.
This is one of many missions that SpaceX is carrying out for Iridium.
The fairing rests on the top of the rocket, and it acts as a shield for the satellites during launch.
SpaceX said no such restrictions will be imposed on its next launch, an April 2 cargo mission to the International Space Station. 40 of those satellites were already launched in 2017.

After ending live video of Friday's launch, SpaceX used Twitter to provide updates as each satellite separated from the rocket's upper stage. The company built 81 satellites with plans to keep nine in space as on-orbit spares and six as ground spares. Friday's mission is the fifth set of 10 satellites being launched for the project.
Through the low-Earth orbiting satellites, Iridium aims to deliver broadband Internet service to places across the globe where land-base cellular technology isn't available.
With the PAZ launch, the company tried this for the first time.
"It has onboard thrusters and a guidance system to bring it through the atmosphere intact, then releases a parafoil and our ship with basically a giant catcher's mitt welded on tries to catch it", Musk said, sharing a photo of the boat. Musk said the fairing landed in the water "a few hundred meters" away from Mr. Steven.
It's important to note that the fairing that SpaceX is attempting to recover today is only one half of the entire nosecone of the rocket.
