SpaceX launches 60 more Starlink satellites

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket boosted 60 more Starlink internet satellites into orbit late Monday from Cape Canaveral.

An attempt to recover the first stage with a landing on an off-shore droneship failed, ending a string of 24 successes in a row.

Another Starlink launch, with another 60 satellites on board, is planned for early Wednesday from the nearby Kennedy Space Center as SpaceX presses ahead with building out a globe-spanning constellation designed to deliver internet access to customers around the world.

What impact, if any, the landing mishap might have on Wednesday's flight is not yet known, CBS News reported.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket roars to life at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station carrying 60 Starlink internet relay stations to orbit. An attempt to recover the first stage with landing on an off-shore droneship failed, ending a string of 24 successful recoveries over the past year.
