SpaceX launched 60 Starlink satellites into orbit onboard its Falcon 9 rocket. The rocket was launched from Cape Canaveral, which is located in Florida. SpaceX's rocket was used four times, which is now a record for the company and it shows the potential for rocket reuse in the future. The rocket could also be used again, as it was designed to be able to complete 10 total flights.
The Starlink satellites are able to provide internet service to people on the ground. The SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, recently sent out tweets using a connection to a Starlink satellite that was previously launched into orbit. The company will attempt to launch internet services to consumers in the United States and Canada after six launches have been completed.
