SpaceX has been a trailblazer in many ways and its recent endeavors are simply fascinating and giving space exploration a new meaning.

As we know, SpaceX aims to launch approximately, 12,000 satellites for their latest project, and so far it has achieved success in launching 58 new Starlink satellites on its Falcon 9 rocket. On Saturday, it has also been discovered that three satellites from the planet have tagged along for a quick ride. These satellites are basically being launched to develop proper internet connectivity on Earth.

Falcon 9 rocket launched and returned back to Earth safe and sound. The rocket landed on the Of Course I Still Love You drone ship present at the Atlantic Ocean.

To give more background on Planet satellites, you should know that they are part of the company’s SkySat constellation that includes a couple of washing machine sized crafts that generate high-resolution pictures of Earth from space.  The next SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Starlink launch is scheduled for July and it will be launching three more Planet satellites. Both the launches are basically part of SpaceX’s SmallSat Rideshare Program which provides operators with an opportunity to aboard on its next mission!

Starlink already has a website through which you can acquire more information on news and service availability in your area. Private Beta Testing of internet facilitating satellites is expected later this season, which will be followed by a public beta testing.

Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley also went to the International Space Station in its Crew Dragon capsule two weeks ago. So, it can be said that exciting things are happening at SpaceX, and unlike ours, its year has been full of adventures and milestones! We wonder what’s next!
