SpaceX once again launches a set of Starlink satellites

The American aeronautical firm SpaceX successfully launched a new set of satellites for its Starlink broadband network overnight from Sunday to Monday.

From Cape Canaveral in Florida, a Falcon-9 carrier rocket took off at 4:09 a.m. CET. The first stage detached and returned to Earth 8.5 minutes after liftoff, specifically on the Just Read The Instructions recovery barge. This floor was used for the seventh time for this mission. Reusing rocket stages does indeed reduce launch costs.

An additional ‘passenger’

The remainder of the rocket placed 51 satellites for Starlink into orbit around our planet. With Starlink, SpaceX plans to implement a global high-speed internet network. The company has now launched 3,259 Starlinks in total.

There was an additional ‘passenger’: the space tug Sherpa-LTC2 from the company Spaceflight. The aircraft performed a payload for Boeing’s Varuna test program to test communication for a constellation of 147 non-geostationary satellites.
