The satellites were launched on top of a Falcon 9 first stage, one that has been reused a total of four times now.
The launch made SpaceX the operator of the largest satellite fleet in space today.
SpaceX moves in 20 20 together using the determined launch, a distance ship, and notions, however, the expectations tempered by just what the firm realized and exactly what it failed to reach in the year 2019.
Falcon left the building of Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
SpaceX successfully launched its third batch of 60 Starlink satellites - the second designated "production" hardware, after launching an initial group of 60 early in 2019 to test the technology.
It was a relatively smooth launch that stuck to the playbook: Upon entering orbit, the Falcon 9 coasted for approximately 36 minutes.
The ambitious Starlink project aims to provide high-speed internet across the globe at all times. However, towards the end of the mission live stream, Lauren Lyons, a Starlink satellite engineer at SpaceX who had been hosting the broadcast, revealed that the attempt had been unsuccessful.
The news of the successful deployment of 60 Starlink satellites was announced by the firm on Twitter this week, along with a video of the actual deployment of the satellites into orbit. It is one of the two ships SpaceX has built to catch spacecraft components with a large net.
Eventually SpaceX wants to put 12,000 up in low-Earth orbit.
The launch was part of SpaceX's plan to create a constellation of small broadband satellites that were aimed to allow wider internet coverage around the world, specifically in the parts of the United States and Canada- after half a dozen more launches and 24 more additional launches soon for global coverage.
"Starlink will provide fast, reliable internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable", the company wrote in its Starlink mission description.
