SpaceX successfully launches another batch of satellites into orbit

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX successfully launched 60 Starlink satellites into space Wednesday after scrubbing Monday’s launch due to strong upper level winds.

The satellites are to help improve internet access across the world.

SpaceX would ideally like 12,000 satellites orbiting earth by the mid 2020s.

The launch was previously slated for January 24 before being scrubbed due unfavorable conditions.

Sightseers said the launch was worth the wait, as 100s came out to watch as the satellites made their way to space.
