SpaceX launches 54 Starlink satellites, lands rocket at sea

SpaceX launched 54 more of its Starlink broadband satellites to orbit and landed a rocket on a ship at sea on Saturday night (Aug. 27).

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying 54 Starlink spacecraft lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida Saturday at 11:41 p.m. EDT (0341 GMT on Aug. 28). That was about 80 minutes later than originally planned, as SpaceX waited for some bad weather to clear.
