SpaceX launched 21 Starlink Satellites Of The Second Generation 

SpaceX has launched 21 Starlink satellites of the second generation into low-Earth orbit. This launch was from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida. It was the third flight of the Falcon 9 first stage booster. 

SpaceX was originally scheduled to launch satellites on Tuesday, February 28th. The company apparently re-scheduled the launch to Thursday to deconflict with prep work for the scheduled early-Thursday liftoff of the Crew-6 astronaut mission from Florida.  

SpaceX has launched over 4,000 Starlink satellites to orbit. But the megaconstellation will continue its growth far into the future. Elon Musk has granted permission for 12,000 spacecraft to be lofted and has applied to have another 30,000 of them deployed. 

SpaceX's Starlink space-based system is designed to provide internet access in underserved regions worldwide. The first stage separated from the Earth and landed on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship, which is located in the Atlantic Ocean. 

SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk, offers varying levels of orbital and suborbital space travel and transport. According to Bryce Tech in 2022, 11 private providers launched 94 rockets, of which SpaceX sent 61 into orbit. 

SpaceX will be preparing a smaller Starlink dish that may be as portable as a laptop. This new dish is lighter and easy to carry. For enterprise customers, the company will also be preparing a next-generation Starlink dish.

SpaceX stated that the dish is designed "to allow consumers to enjoy the benefits of high-speed, low-latency broadband wherever they live or work, including in rural and remote areas where mobile or portable applications are necessary."
