The launch had been pushed to Tuesday morning, but due to rough weather in the recovery area, SpaceX is now targeting no earlier than Wednesday, February 3, at 5:57 a.m.

"With performance that far surpasses that of traditional satellite Internet, and a global network unbounded by ground infrastructure limitations, Starlink will deliver high-speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable," SpaceX says. 

Sixty briefcase-sized satellites are launched at a time, then released one after another. They use low-powered thrusters to slowly space themselves out, a process that takes several months.

Their orbits can be tracked online on various websites, including
