Florida Kennedy Space Center – Because SpaceX plans to launch another round of Internet radiation satellites on the Falcon 9 rocket, it will soon be launched on the Florida coast for a day.
SpaceX will launch the 10th round of Starlink satellites on the Falcon 9 rocket on Friday, bringing the total number of constellations to more than 600. The company launches dozens of satellites every other week to create a space-based global Internet, and even provides Internet access to remote areas.
In this launch, SpaceX will launch dozens of Starlink satellites and carry out a carpooling mission for Earth observation company BlackSky. The company purchased the aircraft on Falcon 9 for its two satellites.
According to the 45th Meteorological Squadron of the US Air Force, the chance of launching from the 39A Kennedy Space Center launch pad on Friday afternoon was as high as 60%.
The forecast of the 45th Meteorological Squadron said: “Overall, the conditions of the launch window are relatively favorable.”
Spaceflightnow.com reported that SpaceX fired a static shot of the Falcon 9 engine on Wednesday night.
The 10-minute start window on Friday opens at 4:18 pm.
After launch, the Falcon 9 booster will land on a drone in the Atlantic.
SpaceX successfully launched the 9th round of Starlink satellite from Cape Canaveral on June 13.
The company recently created a new website where users can register to learn about when Starlink Internet services are available.
According to the SpaceX website, “Starlink’s goal is to provide services in the northern United States and Canada by 2020 and rapidly expand to a densely populated world by 2021.”
SpaceX also plans to launch another Falcon 9 launch on June 30, which was launched from the launch site at Cape Canaveral Air Force Base 40.
