SpaceX Falcon 9 Launches 60 More Satellites For Its Starlink Internet

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched 60 more satellites into space for the Starlink internet. On Wednesday the latest batch of what could eventually be a mega constellation was launched by the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. A few minutes after dispatch, the first phase of the rocket effectively arrived on a droneship in the Atlantic.

This is the fourth time the Starlink spacecrafts are being launched. This party will be exceptionally reflective and potentially noticeable from the earth from certain stops, particularly around dawn and dusk, a quality that has caused dismay in the world of astronomy.

According to administrative filings from the organization, the Starlink mega constellation could potentially add up to 42,000 satellites. With this dispatch, SpaceX has sent an aggregate of 242 satellites into space, including early test feathered creatures. Starlink will give rapid, generally low-inactivity broadband web availability to clients on the ground, beginning with U.S. and Canadian consumers, that is likely to come through early this year.
