A new satellite network that was officially launched last week is meant to make it impossible for commercial airplanes to go missing, according to a new CBS report.
A SpaceX rocket last week delivered 10 satellites into orbit, the final part of an effort by Iridium Communications Inc. to replace its 66 old communication satellites with a new generation of technology, CBS reported.
The new Iridium Communications satellites will have improved airplane-tracking abilities, which could reduce the number of flights that vanish per year.
