WATCH: SpaceX successfully launches 60 Starlink satellites

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX successfully launched another batch of Starlink satellites into orbit Tuesday morning.

The company attempted to launch the satellites five times over the last few months, but each launch was scrubbed due to weather or technical issues.

“Those of us who have been doing this for any length of time know, episodically, you run into periods where it’s just really hard to get anything off the ground,” said Dale Ketchum with Space Florida.

The rocket is lifted off at 7:29 a.m.

The goal of the mission is to create a constellation of satellites that will orbit Earth and improve internet reception around the world.
