SpaceX has launched a new operation in space. The SpaceX Starlink launch happened in the United States, exactly Monday, at 10:59pm EST / 7:59pm PST.
That means, the Starlink launch has already occurred. Here’s everything you should know about this operation, and how to watch the replay of the video.
SpaceX Starlink launch
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was launched to space, bringing 60 internet satellites. It was lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
Unfortunately, the landing returning to Earth wasn’t really successful. Space reported that approximately nine minutes after the launching, the SpaceX’s drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You” missed its target goal.
“It does look like we did not land our booster on Of Course I Still Love You tonight,” SpaceX manufacturing engineer Jessica Anderson said during live launch commentary. “It is unfortunate that we did not recover this booster but our second stage is still on a nominal trajectory.”
Though there’s a little mishap in the launching, it was still considered as a successful operation for the Starlink team.

What is SpaceX Starlink launch
The SpaceX has been doing space launches for over the years now. However, Starlink is a different matter for the company.
The SpaceX Starlink launch puts 60 satellites into orbit that will deliver a space-based high-speed internet.
This allows rural places in Earth to receive higher internet speed compared before. Interestingly, it was not the first time that SpaceX launched bunch of satellites to space, around 1,000 of internet satellites were already found up there.
All these satellites will give boost and connection in almost all parts of the world. This means, the speed will be coming off from space.
Elon Musk starts receiving deposits for Starlink internet
As explained, Starlink launches are one of the most futuristic technologies ever invented for the 21st century.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk had claimed that Starlink internet may bring the fastest internet in the world. If this is true, a lot of consumers are now waiting to have this internet speed, inside their homes.
Of course, this comes with a price.
According to reports, Musk has now started accepting pre-orders for the beta version of the Starlink internet.
How much does Starlink internet costs?
Users are required to pay $99 as an advance amount to book the Starlink satellite internet services which will be shipped ”on a first-come, first-served basis.”
On Oct. 26, SpaceX has already started offering the beta version with download speed of 160-174 megabits per second.
Beta users were asked to pay a fee of $600 upfront to get the internet which Musk announced as “Better Than Nothing Beta”. However, Musk had tried to downplay his hand and said the internet would provide download speeds between 50 to 150 Mbps.
