Having just beat its record for number of launches per year, the company is performing another launch tomorrow. The launch of Starlink satellites will be live streamed. We have everything you need to watch below.
There are contents.
The Starlink satellites will be used to provide global broadband internet access. It is possible to provide internet via satellites instead of on the ground in areas that are often not served. In the U.S., millions of people live in areas without access to broadband speed internet, and the lack of internet access is worse around the world.
Following natural disasters or during war, Starlink has been used to provide internet. Starlink has had its fair share of controversy. The number of satellites being launched, along with their low altitude, could jeopardize research efforts due to the sunlight that reflects.
At 9:38 a.m., the latest batches of satellites will be launched. There is a time limit of 6 minutes and 38 seconds. A bunch of 53 Starlink satellites were deployed using a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center.
The first stage booster of the mission has previously been used to launch other missions, according to the website. After stage separation, the first stage of Falcon 9 will return to Earth and land in the Atlantic Ocean.
The liftoff is scheduled to take place at 9:30 a.m. 6:30 a.m.). You can watch either by using the video embedded near the top of this page or by going over to the SpaceX channel on the internet.
