Mr. Steven will patrol the Pacific Ocean along with Just Read the Instructions for West Coast launches.

It will be out at sea during SpaceX's next Falcon 9 mission to try and capture the rocket fairing. Falcon 9's first stage booster for this mission previously supported the Formosat-5 mission in August of a year ago, states SpaceX.

The rocket will carry PAZ, an Earth observation satellite for Spain, and multiple smaller secondary payloads. Explaining the delay in the launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the company tweeted on Sunday: "Team at Vandenberg is taking additional time to perform final checkouts of upgraded fairing".

SpaceX has failed to explicitly mention about these satellites, though, and they only came up to public knowledge via documents the company filed with the Federal Communications Commission.

"Satellite technology can help reach Americans who live in rural or hard-to-serve places where fibre-optic cables and cell towers do not reach".

SpaceX is planning to use a giant net - one so enormous that it takes up the majority of a high-speed watercraft named Mr. Steven - to catch reusable gear that falls back to Earth after missions to outer space. Martin Elvis from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics believes that the Falcon Heavy rocket can manage to land the equipment easily on an asteroid, though it also depends on a lot of other factors.

As SpaceX prepares to launch another Falcon 9 rocket on Wednesday, the firm also won an endorsement last week from the top USA communications regulator to build a broadband network using satellites.

SpaceX does not plan to recover the first stage booster on this mission.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai proposed the approval of an application by SpaceX to provide broadband services using satellites in the United States and worldwide.
