Space X launched Starlink satellites from Vandenberg Space Force Base on Monday night.
At 8:55 p.m., 51 satellites launched from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E). This was the tenth launch and landing of this Falcon 9 first stage booster, which previously launched the Telstar 18 VANTAGE, Iridium-8, and seven Starlink missions.
Starlink is SpaceX's high-speed broadband satellite internet service intended to reach rural and remote communities.
The next launch at the base is currently scheduled for September 23. United Launch Alliance's Atlas V rocket will launch NASA's Landsat 9 satellite into orbit.
