SpaceX launches 105 Starlink satellites, achieving milestone for internet connectivity

On Monday, SpaceX successfully launched 52 Starlink satellites into orbit from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This was followed by another launch of 53 Starlink satellites on Tuesday. The Falcon 9 rocket used for both launches also successfully landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean.

These launches bring the total number of Starlink satellites in orbit to over 1,700. The SpaceX Starlink system aims to provide high-speed internet access to remote and rural areas around the world.

In addition to the Florida launches, SpaceX also prepared for a launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, with their Transporter-8 mission. The mission aims to deploy a variety of small satellites and payloads into low Earth orbit.

Prior to the launch, weather conditions looked favorable for a Monday launch from Cape Canaveral, according to Florida Today. SpaceX has been conducting frequent launches in recent years as part of their goal to revolutionize space travel and expand internet access to more areas around the globe.

The successful launches and landings mark another milestone for SpaceX and their ambitious plans for space technology.
