    Default F9: Iridium NEXT #8 (10 commsats)

    The last of SpaceX's 8 launches for Iridium, these two companies have developed quite a synergy with SpaceX using Iridium for some of their comms needs.

    Iridium CEO Matt Desch (Twitter: @iridiumboss) is also quite a character online, and one of the more open space-related corporate leaders.
