SpaceX will attempt its 10th launch of the year on Tuesday, a mission serving two different customers. The Falcon 9 rocket will carry five communications satellites for the Iridium NEXT constellation, along with two gravity-measuring satellites for NASA and the German Research Centre for Geosciences. SpaceX appears to have been absolved from blame for this mishap, and certainly the first stage booster performed nominally during that mission. SpaceX will not attempt to recover this core, as it is a Block 4 variant of the booster. The five Iridium satellites will be part of a new constellation to replace the world's largest commercial satellite network.
