SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk Starlink Within the scope of the project, he sent the Falcon 9 rocket with 60 satellites to the Earth's orbit. Starlink'e detailed information about the recent days we had shared with you. The launch from the Cape Canaveral Base in Florida yesterday evening at 22:30 local time was scheduled in early May, but was delayed several times due to bad weather conditions.
It was reported that the satellites were placed in the lower orbit of the Earth at an altitude of 550 kilometers in an hour, and the recycled rocket firing system was landing again at the base 9 minutes after the launch. Let us note that SpaceX is planning to launch a total of 12,000 spacecraft for the Starlink network and to increase access to the Internet and increase access speed with Starlink satellites, each weighing 227 kg.

Starlink has a system that removes electrically charged krypton atoms to provide thrust on platforms with multiple high-efficiency antennas and a solar panel. It should be noted that the drive system is designed to maintain the satellite's position in the sky and to reduce the satellite at the end of its life.
We can say that sending satellites is a very important development. Currently, there are only two thousand satellites in use around the world. If SpaceX's 12 thousand satellite targets are realized, this number will be far behind. However, in order for the first phase of the project to start, at least 420 satellites must be deployed in the lower orbit of the Earth. The first functional satellites are expected to be launched in 2020.
