On a bright grey but cloud free morning at 8:46 AM EDT or 12:46 UTC Elon Musk and his SpaceX team successfully launched Starlink 11(12) from historic launch complex 39A adding another 60 satellites to the Starlink constellation totaling 715 satellites.

First stage booster B-1060.2 completed its second mission to outer space and successfully re-landed on the drone ship OCISLY (Of Course I Still Love You) downrange in the Atlantic Ocean.

Starlink will provide high speed internet to their future customers all over the globe with very low latency and download speeds greater than 100 mbps which is fast enough to stream multiple HD movies at once and still have bandwidth to spare. SpaceX and Starlink will deliver high speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable.
