"Successful deployment of all 10 @IridiumComm NEXT satellites to low-Earth orbit confirmed", the Hawthorne, California-based company tweeted.
As was the case for the December 22 launch that sent up the fourth set of NEXT satellites, Friday's Falcon 9 launch also utilized a previously-flown first stage.
"GPS guided parafoil twisted, so fairing impacted water at high speed", he said on Twitter. SpaceX will set off one of its Falcon 9 rockets to deliver a group of satellites for communications firm Iridium.
For Friday's launch a ship, named Mr. Steven, will head out to sea and attempt to catch half of the fairing with a giant net.
SpaceX did not attempt its signature move on Friday by landing the first-stage rocket booster. Currently, a typical Falcon 9 launch costs around 62 million USA dollars, according to the company.
The value of these fairings is about six million USA dollars, and recovering and reusing them would save money for SpaceX.More news: Teachers Are Walking Out Because They Are Tired Of Begging For Raises

SpaceX previously tried to catch the fairing back in February 2017.
The newest satellites have communicated with ground controllers and will undergo testing before being declared operational, Iridium representatives said. The FCC said it would have to fly 50% of the constellation by 2024, but that it would reconsider delays in the years ahead.
Starting an hour after launch, the satellites were released one by one approximately every 100 seconds, taking about 15 minutes to successfully complete delivery. There are plans for three more launches in the series, according to the company, with the next likely to occur sometime in May.
The system proposed by privately held SpaceX will use 4,425 satellites, the FCC said, and will help improve communications in rural or hard-to-serve places where fibre-optic cables and cell towers do not reach.
Friday's planned launch was the first of two planned by SpaceX in the next four days.
The reusable Falcon 9 rocket was tested in McGregor, Texas. The company is scheduled to launch a cargo mission to the International Space Station at 1:30 p.m. Monday from Cape Canaveral.
