Iridium Communications (Iridium) and Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) announced on June 16, 2010, that they will be joining forces so that SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket can provide launch servives for Iridium's NEXT satellite constellation.
At about 2:45 p.m. EDT (1845 GMT) on Friday, June 4, 2010, the Falcon 9 rocket blasted from its Cape Canaveral launch pad and soon it reached its intended goal: Earth orbit. The successful mission, spearheaded by Elon Musk, is only the beginning of a still-shaky future for the privatization of U.S. manned space exploration.
Reports from eastern Australia of an UFO spiraling around in the sky Saturday morning (June 5, 2010) has been explained as the Falcon 9 rocket that was launched by private space transport company SpaceX from Cape Canaveral in the United States.
