By | March 9, 2022

SpaceX successfully launched a new batch of Starlink internet satellites on Wednesday (March 9), marking the company’s 10th launch in as many weeks.

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket launched 48 starlink satellites into orbit from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida at 8:45 am EST (1545 GMT). The rocket’s first stage then returned to Earth for a smooth touchdown at sea on the SpaceX droneship A Shortfall of Gravitas.
