SpaceX is continuing its busy year with another rocket launch, and this time it’s sending its own suite of communications satellites into Earth orbit that it hopes will facilitate the spread of high-speed internet networks into remote areas. The mission, called Starlink, requires the deployment of lots and lots of pint-sized satellites, and SpaceX will send a full 60 of them into space tonight.
As with most SpaceX launches, the company will be live streaming the entire event from start to finish. You’ll be able to watch the rocket launch, attempted return of the Falcon 9 to SpaceX’s drone ship, and eventually the deployment of the satellites themselves.
