  • SpaceX scrubs SXM-7 mission launch from Cape Canaveral

Marking the second polar launch from the US East Coast in half a century and SpaceX's second such launch overall, the Transporter-1 is likely first of many more to come, providing regular access to orbit for institutions, governments, companies, and even individuals building or buying small satellites.

Almost a fortnight after Elon Musk's Tesla entered India on January 8, his SpaceX on Sunday night broke a world space record by launching 143 satellites in quick succession, beating India's record of deploying 104 satellites in February 2017. At one point, the rocket flew over India and its signal was picked up by Isro's Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network at Bengaluru. Crushing the previous world record - 104 satellites - by more than a third on its first dedicated launch, it's safe to say that SpaceX's Smallsat Rideshare Program is officially off to an exceptionally strong start.

SpaceX on Sunday launched its Falcon 9 rocket carrying a record number of satellites on board, the private space company said.

SpaceX had been scheduled to launch from Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Saturday morning at approximately 9:40 a.m. ET.

The almost 90-minute deployment sequence of the satellites having different roles was nail-biting because they separated in a span of a few seconds and a minute.

As the payload ascended towards orbit, the first stage was separated and flipped for its descent back to Earth, using its engines to slow down its descent before making a soft landing on the company's Of Course I Still Love You droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. With these satellites, SpaceX aims to provide near-global broadband internet coverage all over the world by 2021. "Excited about offering low-priced access to orbit for small companies!"
