The SpaceX Falcon rocket is carrying the final Iridium mission for the year, sending the Iridium NEXT satellites 66-75 into orbit. Iridium CEO Matt Desch counted down the final seconds.

Thanks to Falcon 9 Block 5's increasingly exceptional reusability, SpaceX does not have to outproduce other companies and national space programs to dramatically out-launch them, exemplifed by the fact that SpaceX alone was able to launch more orbital missions than the combined output of every company and country aside from China.
This is the eighth and last set of satellites that SpaceX has launched to replace the world's largest commercial communication satellite network.

This will be the company's first landing attempt since a stage launched December 5 malfunctioned and "landed" in the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Canaveral.
