CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - SpaceX sent another batch of Starlink communications satellites into orbit on Tuesday.
The space company launched the cargo aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral. Approximately nine minutes after the launch, the Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.
This marks the ninth landing for this particular booster which previously supported the launches of the Telstar 18 VANTAGE, Iridium-8, and six Starlink missions.
The goal of Starlink is to create a broadband network that will help provide high-speed internet access to those who are not yet connected and to provide reliable and affordable internet across the globe.
The network is now delivering initial beta service both domestically and internationall, and will continue expansion to near global coverage in 2021, SpaceX says.
"Starlink is ideally suited for areas of the globe where connectivity has typically been a challenge," the space company's website states.
A Starlink Kit includes your Wi-Fi router, power supply, cables and mounting tripod. Starlink also requires a clear view of the sky to connect.
