Prior to the launch, Reserve Citizen Airmen from the 920th Rescue Wing, nearby at Patrick Air Force Base, took off in an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter to secure the Eastern Range ensuring there was no one in harm's way while the rocket lifted off.
Following the launch, the Falcon's first stage successfully returned to Earth and landed on a barge - named "Just Read the Instructions" - floating in the Pacific Ocean, as the company continues its process of reusing rockets to save money on future missions.
Weather conditions in the area of the ship was too harsh: the wind was so strong that it blew the parachute with a canopy, and he again fell into the water. The company also intends to "catch" in a special grid mounted on the ship Mr Steven, the nose cone of the rocket. The communication company Iridium plans to replace its satellites, having 10 of them launched now and others scheduled in a few months from now. Sunday's flight marked the record-breaking heaviest payload brought into orbit by a Falcon 9 and the second block 5 flight. The Galileo satellites offer worldwide positioning services across Europe, and Wednesday's instigation should complete the circle.
Riding 1.7 million pounds of thrust, the launcher pierced a layer of fog and climbed through the stratosphere powered by nine Merlin main engines. A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Thursday, July 26 at 4:33 a.m. PDT, or 11:33 UTC. Upon activation of all 10 new satellites, orbital plane five will become the fourth Iridium orbital plane to be comprised exclusively of Iridium NEXT satellites.
