On March 13, 2021, the Elon Musk-led company, SpaceX had launched around 60 Starlink satellites from the launch complex of Kennedy Space Center.
The American space transportation company, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, had deployed its newest batch of Starlink satellites into the orbit of Earth by using the Falcon 9 rocket. This Falcon 9 rocket is highly re-usable as it was the ninth time for this rocket to drive past the atmosphere of Earth to release the satellites in the orbit. Apart from this remarkable feat achieved by Falcon 9, no other rocket has ever done the same. Being one of its kind, Falcon 9 is the world’s first reusable rocket that enables the Elon Musk-owned aerospace company to release the payloads as well as the astronauts into the orbit of Earth.
SpaceX deployed around 60 satellites for Starlink into the orbit by using the Falcon 9 rocket which has previously completed eight successful mission such as the launches of SXM-7, RADARSAT Constellation Mission, and other missions involving launch of Starlink satellites. SpaceX emphasizes on developing aerospace technology with which the rockets are enabled to take-off and land on the Earth’s surface without any external aid in this process. The space company had praised their rocket claiming that it can be used for ten missions continually without any repair work.
Considering its recent missions, the SpaceX has deployed around 1,300 Starlink satellites into the orbit of Earth. The company has been developing an assemblage of satellites to offer a satellite-based high-speed internet services. This US$ 10 billion space project was initially planned in 2015 and then finally executed its first satellite in 2018. In February 2021, around 10,000 people have already enrolled for this space-based internet service.
