Rebic now plays for Eintracht Frankfurt at club level in the Bundesliga, with no mention of how much they would demand as a fee. Mourinho and United's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, have apparently clashed over what to do about the Frenchman.

The 920th Rescue Wing assisted in the mission by sending out an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter crew to clear the Eastern Range underneath the rocket trajectory.

The rocket has an instantaneous launch window scheduled for 4:39:30 am PDT.

The final Iridium Next launch is expected "later this year" at Vandenberg, according to SpaceX's launch narrator. This is the seventh set of satellites in a series of 75 total satellites that SpaceX will launch for Iridium's next generation global satellite constellation, Iridium® NEXT. Only one more launch of 10 satellites remains until the Iridium NEXT network is completed, ushering in a new era of capabilities, like the Iridium Certus broadband service and Aireon real-time aircraft surveillance system.

According to NASA scientists: "The exact colour that the moon appears depends on the amount of dust and clouds in the atmosphere". On the night of the total lunar eclipse , Mars and the moon will be roughly six degrees apart in the night sky.

Launch commentator John Insprucker downplayed the chances for a successful landing on the ship, named "Just Read the Instructions", because of challenging weather conditions.

The payload includes 10 Iridium-NEXT communications satellites. Once deployed, there will be a total of 65 Iridium NEXT satellites in space.

Today's mission also featured an attempt to catch the rocket's falling nose cone, using a boat equipped with a giant net.
