The US space company SpaceX launched 53 Starlink communications satellites into space on Saturday. As SpaceX announced on Twitter, a Falcon 9 heavy rocket took off from the spaceport on Cape Canaveral at 7:19 a.m. local time (1:19 p.m. CET) without any problems.
In addition, special ocean-going ships from SpaceX were supposed to heave two pieces of rocket head fairing on board that had parachuted into the water. Reusing the fairing can save SpaceX up to $ 6 million on rocket launches.
Starlink is a next-generation satellite-based communications network. It is intended to provide people on earth with secure broadband internet access. The project was initiated in February 2018.
