SpaceX plans to launch next batch of Starlink Satellites Sunday

Cape Canaveral, Fla. — SpaceX has its eyes on Sunday morning to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.

Following a successful static fire test just after 6 a.m. on Saturday, the company announced that they will move forward with their plan to launch its next batch of 60 Starlink satellites onboard the Falcon 9. A fun fact from SpaceX is that the boosters supporting this launch has flown on five previous missions, and this one will be the third one for both fairing halves.

The mission, if successful, will join these satellites among the others in a low, 165 mile orbit above Earth while beaming internet signals to users all over the globe.

Sunday’s launch window is scheduled for 8:25 a.m.( 1227 GMT).
