Posted: Sat, Sep 3, 2022, 6:12 AM ET (1012 GMT)
SpaceX launched another set of Starlink satellites overnight. A Falcon 9 lifted off from Vandenberg Space Force Base at 1:40 am EDT (0540 GMT) Wednesday and deployed 46 Starlink satellites into a polar orbit. The rocket's first stage landed on a droneship on the 150th recovery attempt of a Falcon booster, 139 of which have been successful. The launch came after the Starlink system suffered a global outage early Tuesday, starting around 3 a.m. Eastern, lasting up to three hours. SpaceX didn't provide details about the outage beyond telling customers there was a "known network issue."
