Another successful Falcon 9 launch from the Cape.

SpaceX is celebrating the successful launch and landing of a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral this morning.

The mission deployed 60 Starlink satellites that will be used to provide low-cost internet service around the world. Eventually, SpaceX wants to deploy 12,000 of these satellites.

It was the heaviest payload a Falcon 9 has ever carried aloft.

About 10 minutes after the launch, the first-stage rocket booster successfully landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic off the Florida coast. It was the fourth time SpaceX used the same booster rocket to carry a payload into orbit.

Space fans were pleased. This was the first launch from the Space Coast since late August.
