πŸš€ SpaceX become largest commercial satellite operator

Launching (and landing) the same booster for the fourth time, SpaceX started 2020 with a record-breaking launch.

The launch put 60 Starlink satellites into orbit, taking the total count to 172, which makes them the largest commercial satellite operator.

But this is just the beginning. SpaceX looks to launch several thousand satellites to be able to cover the entire planet with a high-speed internet connection.

The booster landed safely on a drone ship, which was the fourth time for this particular booster and the 43d time overall for SpaceX.
