January 7, 2020 – SpaceX successfully launched its third batch of 60 Starlink satellites – the second designated “production” hardware, after launching an initial group of 60 early in 2019 to test the technology. This group launched aboard a Falcon 9 with a first-stage booster that has already seen service in three previous missions, including two in 2019, one of which was the first bulk Starlink mission in May 2019. This launch took off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, and delivered the satellites to an orbit 290 km (around 180 miles) above Earth. Starlink will provide high-speed, relatively low-latency broadband internet connectivity to customers on the ground, starting with those in the U.S. and Canada, with service potentially becoming available as early as later this year.
