SpaceX Launches 53 Starlink Satellites Into Low-Earth Orbit

Starlink is a global satellite-based internet system, and recently Starlink as a group of satellites was launched into the low Earth orbit from Florida. The satellites were launched via a Falcon-9 rocket that lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Station in Florida on Saturday at 7:19 am IST. And as the updates surfaced, the satellites were launched into space just after sixteen minutes of the launch. Falcon 9 has been reused previously for many such launches, and its first stage was reported to have successfully returned. Furthermore, it landed on the ‘Just Read the Instructions drone ship which is located on the Atlantic Ocean.

Starlink is a project upon which SpaceX has been working for quite some time now. The main motive behind the Starlink group of satellites is to bring internet access to the next level, including areas that do not even have been introduced to the internet to date. 

Besides, there have been 600 humans who have been launched into space since time. And to say that SpaceX launched the 600th human into space was the big news some days ago.

Some more insight into the news suggests that after some seven minutes of the launch, the upper stage of the rocket fired thrusters which rendered the rocket to get into a spinning movement. And this was necessary for the release of the 53 Starlink satellites in zero gravity. Then there was a live camera view right from the Falcon 9’s second stage of the rocket and it presented the stream of retention rods in a jet to unveil the flat-paneled satellites and the rocket was at about 227 Kilometers from the surface.

These Starlink satellites were designed and programmed to deploy their solar panel to start the charging of the batteries. And as told, this was followed by the ignition of Krypton-ion engines so that the thrust could lift the satellites into the set orbits at around 540 Kilometers (335 Miles) from the surface of the earth.

It is also to be noted that this launch by SpaceX of the Starlink fleet was delayed. Starlink was supposed to be set into space on Friday, but due to stormy conditions, the launch was postponed for a day. Eventually, the launch went successful on Saturday.
