SpaceX rocket launches in record 8th flight carrying 60 Starlink satellites, landing on nails



CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida – A SpaceX The Falcon 9 rocket launched in a record 8th flight to send a new fleet of the company’s Starlink Internet satellites into orbit on Wednesday (January 20th) and then landed at sea.

The Falcon 9 rocket took off from historic site 39A here at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 8:02 a.m. EDT (1202 GMT), carrying 60 new Starlink satellites for the rising constellation of SpaceX in orbit. The launch came two days late due to bad weather in the recovery area and the need for additional pre-flight checks.
