The Falcon 9 launch vehicle launched in Florida with another group of 60 Starlink Internet satellites, RIA Novosti reported.
The Falcon 9 rocket was launched from the cosmodrome at Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 02.42 local time. The first stage of the rocket is expected to traditionally land on a floating platform in the Atlantic for later use.
Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of providing broadband Internet access to residents of the Earth. The project began in February 2018. Its goal is to provide access to high-speed Internet anywhere in the world. In total, at the first stage of creating the network, it is planned to launch about 12 thousand satellites.
