SpaceX rocket launches BlueWalker 3 satellite tv for pc, aces 14th touchdown


SpaceX launched a novel — and colossal — industrial communications satellite tv for pc into orbit late Saturday and set a brand new launch document for its Falcon 9 rocket on the similar time.

The Falcon 9 launched into orbit from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy House Middle in Florida carrying 34 of SpaceX’s Starlink web satellites and BlueWalker 3, a prototype satellite tv for pc constructed by AST SpaceMobile that is billed as the biggest industrial communications array ever flown in house. Liftoff was at 9:20 p.m. EDT (0120 GMT) on Saturday evening (Sept. 10), with the Falcon 9 booster making some SpaceX historical past when it returned to Earth.
