SpaceX Launches 35 New Satellites
SpaceX successfully launched 35 satellites into orbit including a huge test satellite built to provide power to smartphones in remote areas.
The AST Space Mobile's Blue Walker 3 is the size of a studio apartment and unfolds into a flat 693-square-foot screen that will produce artificial light that outshines all the night stars in the sky, according to Fast Company.
The company also launched 34 Starlink internet satellites from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida on Saturday with a Falcon 9 booster on its 14th mission, setting a rocket reuse record, SpaceX said.
The Falcon 9 landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean after liftoff, the space company reported.
The new Starlink satellites joined a constellation of about three thousand others in low Earth orbit, providing internet access to more than 400,000 subscribers, according to SpaceX.
