SpaceX launches batch of Starlink satellites from CaliforniaVANDENBERG SPACE FORCE BASE, California: A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from California on Friday and carried 50 extra satellites into orbit for the Starlink web constellation.

A SpaceX webcast confirmed the rocket’s higher stage deploying the satellites a little bit over an hour after the 9:12 a.m. liftoff from Vandenberg House Power Base.

The satellites will use their very own thrusters to maneuver into their operational orbits over a interval of weeks.

The primary stage efficiently landed on a “droneship” within the Pacific Ocean. It was the fourth profitable launch and touchdown of the reusable booster.

Starlink is a space-based system that SpaceX has been constructing for years to carry web entry to underserved areas of the world.

Hawthorne, California-based SpaceX has near 2,000 Starlink satellites orbiting Earth at an altitude of 340 miles (550 kilometers).
