With today’s Starlink launch, SpaceX has now completed four launches of satellites in one month, for a total of 240 sent into orbit. Other Starlink launches took place on March 4, March 11, March 14 and today, which you can watch the replay below:

SpaceX now has over 1,300 Starlink satellites in orbit, reports Space, including some that are no longer in operation. The company’s initial Starlink constellation goal is 1,440 satellites, with FCC approval for 12,000 satellites. However the company has plans to debut 30,000 extra satellites, and if it does, should expand Starlink’s presence beyond our current imagination.
