SpaceX launches 54 Starlink satellites, lands rocket at sea



SpaceX launched 54 extra of its Starlink broadband satellites to orbit and landed a rocket on a ship at sea on Saturday night time (Aug. 27).

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying 54 Starlink spacecraft lifted off from Cape Canaveral Area Drive Station in Florida Saturday at 11:41 p.m. EDT (0341 GMT on Aug. 28). That was about 80 minutes later than initially deliberate, as SpaceX waited for some dangerous climate to clear.
