Falcon 9 launch of fourth batch of Starlink satellites (SpaceX) SpaceX successfully launched a new batch of Starlink satellites Wednesday. The company's Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral at 9:07 am EST (1407 GMT) after several days of weather-related delays and deployed the 60 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit about an hour later. The rocket's first stage landed on a droneship in the Atlantic, while other boats caught one of the two payload fairing halves. The company, meanwhile, is making changes to the Starlink satellites' design, including increasing their mass and making them "fully demisable" upon reentry.
