BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – SpaceX launched another round of Starlink satellites into orbit from Florida’s Space Coast.
The 230-foot Falcon 9 rocket launched at 1:51 p.m. Thursday from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station’s Launch Complex 40.
The forecast called for a 70% chance of favorable weather Thursday morning, with a primary concern of winds during liftoff, according to the 45th Weather Squadron.
If the liftoff is delayed by 24 hours, chances of favorable weather drop to 50%.
Thursday’s launch marked the 43rd for the Starlink, a constellation of more than 2,000 satellites in low-Earth orbit that beam internet connectivity to hundreds of thousands of users.
