Weather looks good for SpaceX night launch from Cape Canaveral

He also addressed that there's a possibility that "much will likely go wrong on the 1st mission". The duo seemed to perform well, according to Musk and SpaceX investors, though the company did end up keeping the satellites in a lower orbit than originally planned.

As you'll be able to inform, the housing is stuffed to the gills - Musk added that the satellites are "flat-packed", without the dispenser you would possibly anticipate for some missions.

The roadster launch, the first test mission of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, used a fairing of the same size as the Falcon 9.

Together, the satellites are meant to fly in a synchronised dance over the Earth, providing internet to every region of the planet.

Competing with Telesat, Facebook, Boeing, OneWeb, LeoSat Enterprises, and Amazon's Project Kuiper, Elon Musk aims to build a satellite broadband constellation in low Earth orbit. The FCC approval gave it its approval provided the company could even launch half of that number within the next six years.

Announced by Musk at an event in January 2015, the initial plan was to launch 4,425 satellites of altitudes ranging from 715 to 823 miles above the earth. Last year, the company launched a pair of test satellites into orbit, and now, for the first time, we get a look at 60 of the final versions loaded up and ready to launch.

The first experimental Starlink satellites were launched in February 2018, but the new launch, involving 60 satellites, will be the first commercial launch of many to come.

What's more, a Starship designed for people may be poised to launch them to the moon and perhaps Mars.

If everything goes according to plan, the first 60 Starlink satellites will be launched into space on Wednesday. They are amongst the several companies who are building these constellations of interconnected satellites to deliver high-speed internet from space.
