SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, July 25 for the launch of ten Iridium NEXT satellites from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. This is the seventh set of satellites in a series of 75 total satellites that SpaceX will launch for Iridium’s next generation global satellite constellation, Iridium® NEXT.
The instantaneous launch opportunity is at 4:39 a.m. PDT, or 11:39 UTC, and the satellites will begin deployment about an hour after launch.
A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Thursday, July 26 at 4:33 a.m. PDT, or 11:33 UTC.

Space X, señor, para que este espectáculo sino usted no permite la transparencia de imagen y vídeos?? Nos enseñas un globo con la ruta hecha, y eso que es? Hoy en día cualquiera lo puede hacer en un programa, entonces, por favor, comparta algo real, o se lo tienen prohibido????

Space x how about you launch the falcon 9 in the sea
How Does it Really Work
In their advertisement, SpaceX shows launching _BFR_ from the ocean. Clip: _"BFR | Earth to Earth"_ on SpaceX channel. You do not have to dip the rocket into the ocean in order to launch it. _Sea Launch_ launched their rockets from a massive platform, like SpaceX's "autonomous spaceport drone ship," but much bigger. There is an episode of _"MegaStructures 0209 Sea Launch"_ about it. They used the platform and also a massive ship on which the rockets were assembled and from which the launch was controlled. If SpaceX can land the rocket on the barge and then reuse it, Falcon 9 is already sufficiently resistant to the water spray etc. The conditions during launch are not very different. The real question is -- when does launching from the ocean makes sense? To decide whether it works better or worse than other alternatives, all the costs and benefits must be tallied -- and that's what these companies do, using the resources that are available to them. So far, _See Launch_ has been an outlier. Most people opt for launching from land.
Dylan Semrau
Dylan Semrau Pirms 2 Gadiem
The Falcon 9 isn’t capable of surviving sea water.
HTSSTR Pirms 2 Gadiem
SpaceX wants to save launch cost that is why they do the landing and try to recover the fairing(failed 3 times sofa). I think they did study the "Sea Launch" and probably turned it down because of the cost to run it compares with the extra fuel to launch on land. Russia is doing it because they don't have good launch sites. We don't and so are European, Chinese, India and Japanese. I didn't know "Sea Launch" did exit.
How Does it Really Work
_" why no one is doing it for the last 20 years ?"_ *They do* -- _Sea Launch_ have launched *32* satellites from the ocean platform, the last one four years ago, before Russian-Ukrainian relations grew sour. Their Zenith 3SL rocket is of a similar size and weight to Falcon 9. They have launched large communication satellites, some over 6 tons, to GTO. I am not familiar with the details of their business calculations, but there can be many reasons why an ocean platform can be competitive with a land based spaceport. Either way, building and maintaining launch facilities is expensive. Finding a suitable location for launching from land is also not always easy -- mostly for safety reasons. Launching from the ocean solves this problem.
HTSSTR Pirms 2 Gadiem
Build, maintain, towing fuel, extra workers ... of a multi-millions dollar barge to the equator versus extra fuel to launch on land are truly saving money? If launch at sea is actually an advantage then why no one is doing it for the last 20 years ?

@SpaceX Trying to catch those fairing with a net is a fishy business. Do this instead: 1) Parachute those fairing down 2) Optionally, if needed to reduce the speed even more, right before the splash, fire some dumb, directed downward, truster from under parachute base 3) Let them sunk 4) Raise them up with an air bubble 5) Locate them by GPS 6) And pick them up at your convenience.
Ruslan Kadylak
Ruslan Kadylak Pirms 2 Gadiem
Ok. I figured they have their reasons.
David Keenan
David Keenan Pirms 2 Gadiem
1 - A pristine fairing, in mild seas, will float. i.stack.imgur.com/bhLqh.jpg 2 - Adding retro rockets and floatation equipment would add weight. Keeping weight to a minimum is a high priority in rocket design. 3 - Ocean water is corrosive. SpaceX's aim is to rapidly reuse fairings, not just recover and refurbish them. Nasa experimented with using large parafoils to make precise landings of small lifting bodies. SpaceX is revisiting that concept in an attempt to avoid the impact and corrosion damage of an ocean splashdown.
Ruslan Kadylak
Ruslan Kadylak Pirms 2 Gadiem
My idea was "do not try to catch it in a net - splash it in the water instead". It is easy to miss a net, but it is much harder to miss the ocean.
David Keenan
David Keenan Pirms 2 Gadiem
They do use a large parafoil. Their aim is to guide it to a landing in the net. Failed so far, but they're getting closer.

How Does it Really Work
The part that gets red-hot is the nozzle extension of the second stage engine. It is made of a niobium alloy. Here is what _SpaceX_ says: _“The bell shaped Merlin Vacuum nozzle extension is made of niobium sheet alloy, measures 9 feet tall and 8 feet at the base diameter, and thins out to about twice the thickness of a soda can at the end. Although made of an exotic refractory alloy metal with a melting temperature high enough to boil steel, this component is geometrically the simplest part of the engine.”_

HTSSTR Pirms 2 Gadiem
SpaceX needs to spend their limited fund for more importance stubs like improving rocket tech, reducing cost of launch... Live stream the landing on drone ship is their last priority. Nobody knows for sure when we will have a first test flight to Mars, the cost is more than several billion dollars, I am not sure if SpaceX will have enough fund to do the first test flight in 5-6 years. Mars exploration is a job of a nation not individual person.
Антон Гончаренко
HTSSTR I like the SpaseX program, and I wish it prosperity and development. I'm worried about another question. When will we fly to Mars?))
HTSSTR Pirms 2 Gadiem
The landing is recorded, the problem was with transmitting the landing to a satellite to stream back to LVlocal. The drone camera did the recording correctly for SpaceX engineer to analyze the landing. SpaceX is not under any obligation to live stream the launch and land its rockets.

Can somebody explain to me how the satellites get far away from each other? Wouldn’t they stay on the same trajectory as Stage 2? Is it because they are pushed out a bit they end up in different trajectories or do they have their own little thrusters?
How Does it Really Work
They are released into a circular 625 km orbit. One by one, they bump themselves up to their final slots in the 800 km orbit, by using on-board thrusters. Each satellite has 141 kg of fuel.

"SpaceX litters our oceans!" "Watch this footage of Elon Musks's rocket failing and crashing into the sea!" "SpaceX: Reusability a total sham?" ..... That's why. Because people are complete manipulative freaking idiots. So the people who actually have a clue can't have anything nice like that.
