You Can Watch SpaceX Launch 10 Satellites and Land a Rocket Today! Here's How. - Space.com

SpaceX will launch 10 communications satellites and attempt a rocket landing Friday morning (Jan. 11), and you can watch all the action live.

  SpaceX will launch 10 communications satellites and attempt a rocket landing Friday morning (Jan. 11), and you can watch all the action live.

  There will be action in the downward direction as well: About 7 minutes after liftoff, the Falcon 9's first stage will attempt a vertical touchdown on the SpaceX droneship "Just Read the Instructions," which will be stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

  The company has already pulled off dozens of rocket landings and reflown numerous Falcon 9 first stages and Dragon cargo capsules (which make robotic resupply runs to the International Space Station under a SpaceX contract with NASA).

  SpaceX is lofting these 75 satellites over the course of eight Falcon 9 launches, the most recent of which took place in July 2018.

  Friday's planned liftoff has been delayed several times, in part to give SpaceX time to work through some issues with the Falcon 9, Iridium CEO Matt Desch tweeted earlier this week.
