SpaceX announces the launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
The satellites were originally stationed in a lower orbit – at an altitude of about 174 miles – to make them more visible on Earth. After the company's engineers checked the original data, the engines of the satellites should move them into a higher orbit.
The company describes the project's mission as helping to develop a new broadband Internet system.
"Encouraged by a constellation of low earth orbiting satellites, Starlink will provide fast and reliable Internet access for low and low connectivity populations, including those in rural communities and locations where existing services are too expensive or unreliable." [1
