Posted: Sat, Feb 13, 2021, 11:24 AM ET (1624 GMT)
SpaceX launched another batch of Starlink satellites early Feb. 4 in the first of what was intended to be back-to-back missions. The Falcon 9 lifted off from Cape Canaveral at 1:19 am EST (0619 GMT) and deployed its payload of 60 Starlink satellites 65 minutes later. The rocket's first stage, making its fifth flight, landed on a droneship. This launch brings the total number of Starlink satellites in orbit to more than 1,000. SpaceX previously planned to perform a second Falcon 9 launch early Thursday, also carrying Starlink satellites, but postponed that launch indefinitely.
