Elon Musk-owned SpaceX will be launching today a new batch of Starlink internet satellites to low-Earth orbit. The company’s Falcon 9 rocket carrying 52 Starlink satellites will lift off Saturday at 7:32 p.m. ET (23:32 UTC) from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
The Falcon 9 first stage booster supporting this mission previously launched SES-22 and two Starlink missions. Following stage separation, the first stage will land on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
Starlink is a constellation of internet satellites providing high-speed, low-latency broadband internet across the world. Available on all seven continents, the Starlink satellite internet service is currently serving 40 countries around the world.
