Although SpaceX's most recent launch was a failure, the company has a pretty good track record. The first stage's nine Merlin 1D engines produce about 1.5 million pounds of thrust at sea level, ramping up to 1.7 million pounds of thrust in vacuum.The Falcon 9's nine Merlin 1D engines shut down. The company hopes to fly one of these returned or "flight-proven" rockets in 2017. In June 2015, a Falcon 9 broke apart shortly after launching the company's robotic Dragon cargo capsule on a resupply mission to the International Space Station for NASA. However, SpaceX's investigation of last September's mishap pushed back that timeline. This time another Falcon 9 rocket will be carrying Iridium NEXT satellites into space.
Tomorrow's launch is an opportunity for SpaceX to not only return to flight and restore confidence in the Falcon 9, but also carry out a complicated mission similar to what will be needed for its satellite-internet network.
