The American spacecraft manufacturer SpaceX launches another batch of Starlink satellites to orbit from Florida. This liftoff launched on Monday night at 11:20 p.m. (Eastern Time Zone).
SpaceX added another satellite to its ever-expanding Starlink internet mega constellation. Starlink satellites lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
About 8.5 minutes after launch, the Falcon 9’s first stage returned to Earth for a vertical landing. It came down on the drone ship namely “Just Read the Instructions” which was stationed off the coast of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean.
According to a SpaceX mission, this was the 17th launch and landing for the particular booster. Meanwhile, the Falcon 9’s upper stage was supposed to release the 23 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO) roughly 65.5 minutes after liftoff.
According to astronomer and satellite tracker Jonathan McDowell, the Starlink network, which launches internet service down to people all over the world, already has over 5,000 operating satellites.
However, that number continues to rise and will most certainly continue to do so in the future. SpaceX already has clearance to launch 12,000 Starlink vehicles into low-Earth orbit, and it has requested for an additional 30,000.
Just a month ago, SpaceX launched 22 Starlink internet satellites as part of the 16th space mission launch on October 17, 2023. The launching source was the same for it as Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
