Breaking news! SpaceX will make its 11th launch with the Falcon 9 missile for Starlink satellites. See the launch here


News! SpaceX is launching a new round of Starlink satellites on the morning of December 18, 2021. The launch will take place on the West Coast of the United States of America, more precisely from the Vandenberg Space Force station in California. A total of 52 Starlink satellites will be launched into Earth orbit today. The take-off is scheduled to take place at 4:24 a.m. EAST. 

Indeed, SpaceX is breaking the record. After building Falcon 9, SpaceX reached its 28th launch with Falcon 9 this year (2021). That's the record for the company's most annual releases. Even though it's December and it's approaching the holidays, SpaceX doesn't want to stop right here. Elon Musk's company wants to make two more launches with Falcon 9 this year, according to the SpaceX calendar. And that will lead to 30 launches in a year, a record that is hard to beat. Both missions (which they still have) are to be launched from Florida, United States of America. 

Elon Musk was one of the first to come up with the idea of ​​launching these Starlink satellites to provide free internet to a huge number of users around the world. He has invested $ 30 billion in Starlink and hopes it will achieve its goal. The constellation of stars that Elon Musk wants to make with SpaceX is worth more than $ 10 billion. But let's get back to the flight that SpaceX has scheduled for this day. If successful, like many SpaceX missions, then there will be a new constellation of satellites in Earth orbit, which will have 1944 satellites. 

SpaceX claims that the launch, which will take place today, is intended to bring the Internet to the poles of the Earth, the second launch after the one in September which focuses on the poles of the Earth.

We wish SpaceX every success with the launch and hope it succeeds!
