SpaceX makes history with space missions

 

SpaceX owns and operates the Starlink system. For 2 years now they have been sending out the Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit. The ultimate goal is to deliver high-speed internet anywhere on the globe. The Starlink internet service now has over 400,000 subscribers.

On Saturday 34 Starlink satellites were launched by the Space Agency. Saturday’s mission from Complex 39A was the first of two quick succession liftoffs. And it was powered by the Fleetleader Falcon 9 which has flown 14 successful missions, so far.

On Sunday night, SpaceX launched 54 Starlink satellites from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. 

This was the sixth launch and landing of this reusable Falcon 9 first-stage booster. It has previously flown missions for Crew-3, CRS-22, Turksat 5B, and CRS-25. 

They flew from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40). And they were seen over Texas on Monday night.
