After multiple postponements, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base Friday.

The launch took place at 10:38 a.m.


The rocket is delivering 51 Starlink satellites into orbit.

Starlink is the spacecraft manufacturer’s high-speed broadband satellite internet service designed to reach rural and remote communities.

Following stage separation, landed the rocket's first stage booster on the "Of Course I Still Love You" drone ship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

The launch was first set to liftoff Monday but was pushed back multiple times, at least twice due to weather concerns.

This marks SpaceX’s fourth launch from Vandenberg so far this year.
