SpaceX launched the latest batch of Iridium satellites to orbit today atop a reused Falcon 9 rocket.

The rocket, which was previously used for the Iridium 3 launch back in October, lifted off from the SpaceX Launch Complex Space Launch Complex 4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 10:13 ET.

Today’s launch marks the fifth set of 10 satellites the firm has delivered to orbit, for what will eventually be a global satellite constellation of 75 craft.

And, SpaceX has done it all so far using a total of just three rockets.
