On Tuesday November 24th, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket was successfully launched. In addition, for the seventh time, she managed to break the record of sending 60 satellites to be put into orbit to provide the satellite internet from Starlink, a company named the SpaceX project to create a constellation of internet Satellite was founded to provide broadband services, low latency, and global coverage at low cost. That launch made history with SpaceX’s 100th spaceflight – the Falcon 9 spacecraft – and Starlink’s sixteenth mission.
The Falcon 9 two-stage rocket left Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 9:13 p.m. on Tuesday. Then the booster returned to earth and landed on the “Of course I still love you” platform. Falcon 9 was recovered in good condition and without any breakdowns. SpaceX has launched approximately 830 Starlink satellites that are already working.
The purpose of Starlink is to cover the planet with a network of 42,000 satellites broadcasting the internet at high speed.
Regarding Falcon 9
We do know that the Falcon 9 rocket can be reused. In September 2018 she participated in the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission, in January 2019 she completed the Iridum 8 mission and four subsequent Starlink missions in 2019 and 2020.
A historic record was achieved on this 23rd launch mission SpaceX 2020as it was the largest number of trips the company has made this year.
“Beta Better Than Nothing”
As already known, the project is known as “Beta Better Than Nothing” is committed to the worldwide spread of the Internet. On October 18, the SpaceX company launched its public beta test for Starlink. Experiments have been carried out in the northern United States and southern Canada. A public beta test is now planned for the entire launch in North America. Based on this, the company continues to send satellites into our orbit.
According to the Starlink website, the US and Canada will aim for coverage with their signal by the end of 2020 and “almost global coverage” by 2021.
