With the launch in the US state of Florida, SpaceX sent 60 new Starlink satellites into low orbit. With these 60 new satellites, the number of satellites in orbit has approached 900.
The number of departures of the company in the Starlink project reached 15 with this departure. Like 14 other missions, he is about to successfully complete this mission.
The Falcon 9 used in the mission also carried Starlink satellites, which were launched into the atmosphere just last month. Usually, it took longer maintenance and waiting time before using SpaceX rockets again. This time they started the process without waiting that long.
