SpaceX plans to launch the next batch of 10 Iridium Next satellites onto orbit on 22 December at 17:26hrs PT from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the back of its Falcon 9 rocket. This launch signifies the mid-way point of the Iridium Next launch programme and will bring the total number of deployed satellites to 40. Targeted for just over two months after the third Iridium Next launch, this December date enables Iridium to maintain its planned cadence of completing all launches by mid-2018.
