SpaceX was successfully able to launch 60 models of the Starlink Satellite. The launch took place at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, located in Florida. Versions of the Starlink Satellite were on board a Falcon 9 rocket, and the company was able to recover the rocket following the launch.
With the latest successful launch, the company now has 240 satellites operational in the Starlink, which was created to provide broadband internet access. SpaceX will now look to launch approximately 12 more bunches of the satellite to bolster its network. Once the company believes it has a large enough network, it will then begin to offer consumers high-speed internet, particularly to locations that would not normally be able to access a high performing internet service.
