A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was launched from Vandenberg Space Force Base on Friday at 11:12 a.m.


The rocket is delivering 51 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit.

Starlink is SpaceX's high-speed broadband satellite internet service designed to reach rural and remote communities.

Following stage separation, the rocket's first stage booster landed on the "Of Course I Still Love You" drone ship stationed in the Pacific Ocean. The same booster was previously used in eight other missions.

This is SpaceX's third launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base this year.
