SpaceX launched 11 satellites from Florida tonight (April 7) on its first Bandwagon-1 class rideshare mission, and the evening rocket landed within minutes.

A Falcon 9 rocket launched the 11-satellite Bandwagon-1 mission from NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) at 7:16 p.m. EDT (2316 GMT) tonight. The spacecraft successfully reached orbit, and SpaceX ended its live broadcast early at the request of its customer, South Korea, which flew its Project 425 SAR synthetic aperture radar satellite, according to Spaceflight Now.
