KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. – All systems are go for another SpaceX launch!
After several scrubs, the Falcon 9 rocket lifted off Tuesday morning and was carrying a payload of 60 Starlink satellites. They successfully deployed about an hour after the rocket blasted off.
This is the 13th launch of a large batch of Starlink satellites into orbit to provide broadband service.
The launch, originally scheduled for September, got postponed several times due to bad weather conditions and a bad sensor reading.
