Elon Musk intends to launch 60 more Internet satellites into orbit

Elon Musk’s company SpaceX is going to start a batch of 60 mini-satellites into orbit on May 7, designed to continue the deployment of the Internet coverage network.

The launch of the Falcon 9 heavy launch vehicle with Starlink satellites will be carried out from the Cape Canaveral cosmodrome in the US state of Florida, despite the coronavirus pandemic in the states.

According to information received from the spaceport command, the necessary precautions are currently being taken there to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading. Almost all previously planned space launches are postponed.

It is noteworthy that last Thursday, April 23, Elon Musk’s company successfully put another 60 satellites into orbit, bringing the orbital grouping to 420 spacecraft. Currently, SpaceX has become the world’s largest satellite operator. By 2021, the Corporation intends to cover the entire planet with its coverage. The project cost is 10 billion dollars.
