Late Sunday, SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket carrying another payload of Starlink satellites into space from Florida.

The rocket lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 10:41 p.m. EDT, carrying the 22 satellites into low-Earth orbit, where they will join Starlink’s network of thousands of orbitals that provide high-speed, low-latency Internet around the world.

SpaceX’s senior quality systems engineering manager, Kate Tice, stated minutes before liftoff that weather had just a “10% chance of violating our launch commit criteria.”

SpaceX’s 53rd launch of the year and 252nd overall.

The first-stage booster, which was on its fourth mission, successfully landed on the Shortfall of Gravitas droneship, which was waiting for it in the Atlantic Ocean.

The mission’s fairing halves were both flight tested, with one flying its eighth mission and the other flying its tenth. They were supposed to be rescued by the Doug drone ship.

SpaceX also launched a single Intelsat satellite into orbit on Thursday.
