SpaceX launches Falcon 9 rocket carrying Starlink satellites. Their goal is to blanket the planet in high-speed broadband

Il SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched Sunday morning, sending 60 Starlink satellites into orbit.

Falcon 9 took off from the 39 launch pad at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at around 6 a.m., SpaceX said on Twitter.
The first stage booster supporting the mission completed eight flights prior to this launch.
    Falcon 9’s first stage has landed on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, completing the ninth flight of that booster,” SpaceX twittato.
      The Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket, which stands 70 meters or 229 piedi alti, according to information provided during the broadcast of the launch. È described by SpaceX as thefirst orbital class rocket capable of reflight.
          Il 60 Starlink satellites were deployed about an hour after the rocket was launched.
          Starlink is a satellite-based internet constellation intended to blanket the planet in high-speed broadband, and often touted as a way to potentially bring connectivity to the billions of people who still lack reliable internet access.
          The idea requires swarms of satellites operating in low-Earth orbit — approssimativamente 340 miles high, in SpaceX’s caseto provide continuous coverage.
            Di 1,000 Starlink satellites have been deployed, and SpaceX plans to grow Starlink to include more than 40,000 satellites. Quello è five times the total number of satellites humans have launched since the dawn of spaceflight.
            SpaceX now owns about one-third of all the active satellites in space.
