Initially, the Falcon 9 rocket had been scheduled to blast off from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Friday, but the company decided to postpone the launch for a day due to adverse weather conditions.
"Deployment of 53 Starlink satellites confirmed," SpaceX wrote on Twitter attaching the video of how a valuable payload was separating from the rocket.
Starlink is meant to ensure broadband Internet connection after a large number of small spacecraft weighing up to 260 kilograms are deployed into the orbit. According to the SpaceX assessment, the launch of 11,000 satellites and starting them will cost $10 billion. More than 1,800 satellites have already been launched into the orbit by SpaceX since May 2019.
