Wednesday 18 March 2020 | 15:41 CET | News
SpaceX managed to put another batch of Starlink satellites into orbit on the back of a Falcon 9 rocket after canceling a planned launch on 15 March. More than 60 satellites reached orbit, despite an engine cutout during the flight. CEO Elon Musk said the Falcon 9 rocket lost one of its nine engines during the trip. However, the company was unable to land its rocket on its sea drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean.
