Another Batch Of SpaceX Starlink Satellites Heading Into Orbit
SpaceX is set to launch another 60 Starlink satellites from Cape Canaveral in an effort to build a global blanket of internet coverage. The tiny internet satellites will join the more than 1,000 currently in orbit.
The launch is scheduled for 9:58 p.m. ET and weather is favorable.
SpaceX is building a massive satellite constellation to provide broadband internet access worldwide.
This next batch of 60 heading to orbit will ride on a SpaceX Falcon 9 booster that previously sent NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley into space.
SpaceX plans to land the booster on a barge in the Atlantic Ocean, an effort to reuse the rocket and lower the cost of launches.
