SpaceX has confirmed successful deployment of all 10 communications satellites to low-Earth orbit after their launch aboard a a Falcon 9 on Friday, but the company reported a glitch in landing the $6 million nose cone into a giant seaborne net.
This was the fifth set of 10 satellites in a series of 75 total satellites that SpaceX will launch for Iridium's next generation global satellite constellation, Iridium® NEXT.
The $3-billion USA project is scheduled for completion this year, with a total of 75 new satellites in orbit.

On Thursday, the USA communications regulator gave formal approval to a plan by Elon Musk's SpaceX to build a global broadband network using satellites.
The Iridium-NEXT satellites were launched Friday morning for McLean, Virginia-based satellite operator Iridium Communications, Efe reported.
Following the Iridium-4 launch past year, the first stage rocket made a successful landing aboard SpaceX's West Coast Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS), however, it was not recovered again following its second flight on Friday. This is a protective metal shield used to cover the cargo as the rocket is en route to space and blasts through the atmosphere.
Friday's planned launch was the first of two planned by SpaceX in the next four days. A total of eight Iridium NEXT launches are now planned with SpaceX delivering a total of 75 new satellites to orbit. Instead, it will try to recover part of the nose cone.
Musk has noted that the fairing returns to Earth "at about eight times the speed of sound". This is most likely due to NOAA' action of issuing a license for SpaceX which includes certain conditions related to their live streaming capabilities from space.
However, despite the boat taking its designated position in the Pacific, official reports announced later that day, that the fairing's parafoil, unfortunately, got tangled during its plummet towards earth and crashed into the Pacific with severe impact, which likely destroyed the "bulbous payload" structure.
@IridiumBoss: We are having an issue with 1 of the 10 satellites in prep for #Iridium5. However, the recovery of the fairing is certainly something that the company would like to accomplish.
Continuing with their launch mission, another Falcon 9 launch is scheduled to take place on April 2.
