MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The American company SpaceX carried out a successful launch of 60 Starlink satellites.

The Falcon 9 rocket was lifted at 8:25 a.m. EDT (GMT-4) from launch pad 39A at the John F. Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA.

The launch was broadcast live over the internet.

A quarter of an hour later, SpaceX confirmed that the first stage of the rocket landed on the autonomous platform. Of Course I Still Love You.

With today’s launch, the fourteenth, there are 835 Starlink satellites already deployed in orbit, if you count the two prototypes launched in 2018.

Starlink is a satellite network designed to provide broadband internet. In total, about 12,000 satellites are planned to be put into orbit.

The first 60 were released in May 2019.
