SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launches more satellites into space

Nearly two dozen of SpaceX's Starlink satellites were launched into space Tuesday from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.

SpaceX's Falon 9 rocket lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at 6:17 p.m. The weather was almost 100% perfect conditions for launch.

Shortly after launch, Falon 9's first stage landed safely back on Earth, marking its 300th landing, SpaceX said in a follow up post on X, formerly Twitter. 

Shortly after that, the deployment of the 23Starlink internet satellites was confirmed.
