On Saturday, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket in Florida with 54 Starlink Internet satellites on board.

It was the Falcon 9’s fifteenth journey to space when it was launched from the Kennedy Space Center. Just under nine minutes later, the rocket’s first stage made its way back to Earth, landing on a SpaceX drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida.

The satellites will expand SpaceX’s network of consumer-grade, fast, low-latency internet. There are already more than 40 nations and territories where subscribers can connect to the Starlink network.

The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket has successfully landed on the Just Read the Instructions droneship, making this booster’s 15th launch and landing. Just after touchdown, SpaceX tweeted.

More than 3,500 Starlink spacecraft have already been launched by the business, and many more are planned. The launch on Saturday was SpaceX’s third in the previous two days.

For a new communications system being developed by a business in Luxembourg, the company launched two high-power broadband satellites on Friday.

The first two O3b mPOWER satellites were launched into orbit by the Falcon 9 rocket’s second stage to join SES’s 20 O3b Internet satellites of the first generation, which are headquartered in Luxembourg.

SES is a satellite communications network, and it now has authority over 67 active satellites in geostationary and medium Earth orbit.

Five of them are a part of the O3b group, sometimes known as O3b MEO. O3b, short for “Other 3 Billion,” refers to the enormous number of people who do not have access to dependable Internet service.
