SpaceX recently fired off a Falcon 9 rocket from Florida and the day when this happened was Tuesday night. This achievement of SpaceX is there marking the company’s 100th overall 23rd so far.  After all this, the rocket-boosted off another set of 60 Starlink internet satellites into orbit just by using the first stage making a record of the seventh flight. Furthermore, the latest batch of Starlinks pushed down the total number launched to date to 955 because SpaceX continues to build down a globe-spanning constellation of internet relay satellites. This is just to provide good broadband services to the subscribers anywhere there on the planet earth. Hence, there are thousands of more satellites also planned.

Probing further, Liftoff came around 3 days later than the planned dates just because of the high winds. High winds are the only thing that delayed the first stage engine test firing and rough weather in the off-shore booster recovery zone. But it is very much clear sailing Tuesday that 30-story-tall Falcon 9 raced away over the Atlantic Ocean, are they putting on a spectacular early evening show. This show is for all the area residents and tourists around the spot.

The rockets in the first stage made a record seventh trip out of the lower atmosphere becoming the SpaceX 9th fleet leader. After 2 minutes of the launch nine Merlin 1D engines shut down and it also separated from the Falcon 9s second stage. Now the second stage continued toward orbit on the power of its single vacuum-rated engine. Whereas the first one plunged back to the earth, guiding for a picture-perfect landing. Therefore, SpaceX is currently in a testing mode of Starlink service across parts of Canada and the northern U.S. Hence, the company is having the approval of launching thousands of satellites in the six orbital planes.
