On November 11, SpaceX launched 60 mini satellites into orbit, the second part of a network designed to provide global internet coverage. The new Starlink satellites, weighing just 260 kilograms each, joined 60 others that were launched in May.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk wants to put thousands of these satellites in orbit, allowing them to offer high-speed internet service around the world. He plans to start service in the northern US and Canada in 2020, with global coverage for populated areas planned to be ready after 24 launches.

The company reuses parts of its rockets to cut costs, and the boosters are designed to be used 10 times. The Falcon rocket that carried the satellites was making its fourth flight into space. Employees cheered as the booster landed on a floating platform in the Atlantic after delivering the satellites to space.
