A SpaceX Falcon 9 launched a set of Starlink satellites Wednesday morning, the third such launch in less than a week. The Falcon 9 lifted off from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A at 6:59 am EDT (1059 GMT) and deployed its payload of 53 Starlink satellites into orbit an hour later. The booster landed on a droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. The launch followed Falcon 9 launches from California and Florida last Friday and Saturday, which also carried Starlink satellites as SpaceX continues to build out its broadband constellation.
