Elon Musk SpaceX sends off twenty more Starlink satellites, A second batch of Elon Musk’s Space X satellites that will provide direct access to cellphones has been launched on Tuesday night, including 13 satellites that can provide cellular access directly.

A Falcon 9 rocket was launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida at 10:16 p.m. on June 5 carrying the Starlink spacecraft to the International Space Station.

As planned, SpaceX’s droneship made an 8.5-minute return to Earth following the launch of the Falcon 9’s first stage, which landed about 8.5 minutes after launch. 

This mission was described as SpaceX’s 20th launch and landing for the booster, according to the mission description. The corporation set a record for reuse of the Starlink system last month with the launch of the system.

Starlink is part of Space X’s Starlink constellation, which was launched Tuesday, and is believed to be a constellation of 13 direct-to-cell satellites that will allow LTE phones across the globe to receive text, voice, and data in a seamless manner.

It took around 52 minutes after launch for the 20 Starlink satellites to be deployed into low Earth orbit after being launched into low Earth orbit by the upper stage of the Falcon 9.

There have been 58 orbital missions flown by SpaceX so far in 2024, with 41 of those being involved in the significant and ever-expanding Starlink mega constellation that is currently being constructed.
