Back in 2010, Iridium placed the largest commercial launch contract bet on a blooming upstart provider, and, we'd do it all over again. @SpaceX this one's for you: You Make My Dreams by @halloates starts at T+00:14:44 #Iridium8 @Spotifyhttps://t.co/q3lckUhC1d 🚀
MISSION SUCCESS!!! SpaceX delivers for the eighth and final time – completing the Iridium NEXT constellation. Iridium is SpaceX's largest commercial customer to date. #Falcon9 #Iridium8

It has been a heck of a ride! Thanks for playing along & we hope you enjoyed listening to the soundtrack as much as we did creating it. Here's to a better tomorrow for everyone: One Day by @matisyahu will close things out in 1 minute. https://t.co/q3lckUhC1d #Iridium8 @Spotify
A bittersweet goodbye will be said to our beloved #IridiumFlares as we replace our original satellites. Flarecatchers out there, thank you for helping capture our legacy. #flarewell. Dancing in the Moonlight by @toploaderuk @ T+00:17:55 https://t.co/q3lckUhC1d #Iridium8 @Spotify
#SpaceX has been experimenting with fairing recovery which has been pretty cool. I’ve seen video of a boat trying to ‘catch’ a fairing as it parachutes into the ocean.
Love the fact they’re looking to reuse this stuff. That makes them ‘totes badass’ in my books.
While @Iridiumboss chose this past song, this one is from us to our fearless leader who took on an industry looking @ Iridium "questionably" at the time & brought us forward to today. The Walker by @FitzAndTantrums begins @ T+00:26:06 https://t.co/q3lckUhC1d #Iridium8 @Spotify
@SpaceX launch fun 😀🚀
5yo just asked me how the booster can come back to earth. Even she understands the difference #SpaceX is making! 🤗

Congrats to @spacex and @IridiumComm@IridiumBoss on a successful culmination of 2 years of launches and 75 satellites! Pictured here is the #Telstar18V launch, this same booster B1049 successfully launched the #Iridium8 mission! 3rd mission upcoming for B1049? Hope so! https://t.co/uN56NFujid
Here’s an incredible thing you might have missed today. Partnership between @SpaceX and @IridiumComm has successfully replaced an entire network with 75 new satellites - and did it in barely two years. Final 10 satellites were launched this morning. #Iridium8 #space https://t.co/FUAI7thGIC
The #Iridium Butterfly has taken flight. It's wonderful to know the #IridiumNEXT satellites will now perform their orbital dance as a completed, marvellous constellation! https://t.co/sQtJwd7kty #Iridium8
