Watch SpaceX launch 60 Starlink satellites in ONE launch!

SpaceX will be launching 60 demonstration satellites for their Starlink Internet constellation. The Falcon 9 will launch from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS).
The first stage booster for this mission is B0149. It is flying its third mission, it previous launched the Telstar 18V satellite in September of 2018 and flew the Iridium 8 mission in January of this year. It will be landing approximately 621 km (385 miles) downrange on the Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS), Of Course I Still Love You (OCISLY). This will be one of the farthest downrange landing locations for a Falcon 9 so far.

  • There is a lot of concern with the astronomy community that Starlink satellites will ruin astronomical observations. How can we let Elon Musk know that some simple changes to his satellites need to be done so they don't ruin astronomy and the ability of observatories to make new discoveries? A little black paint and some discussions with the astronomy community is needed as soon as possible!

  • Finally getting around to watching your coverage of this launch, I usually prefer to watch them direct from SpaceX the first time through. I know you try to be respectful when they're speaking, but sometimes you aren't perfect. I just like to make sure I don't miss a thing, nothing personal! I wish I could reassure past-Tim that your Raptor video is currently sitting a bit under 800k views in under a month! I'm just wondering, how close did this come to your expectations? :)

  • Just recently found your channel in my suggested about a week ago, gotta say im liking the content. Your explanation on the different types of engines was very in depth and for the most part, was pretty easy to understand (had to look up some terms). Keep up the great content. Was steadily losing interest in astronomy in general and SpaceX has revived that and you deliver the content :)

  • We have 200 mbps+ downlink speeds here, and there are faster domestic options locally. Latency to the ISP server, is usually around 9 to 18 ms. It will be interesting to see what Starlink will do, when it's fully operational. Latency will be around at least 0.5 seconds, but the transfer speeds could be very competitive.

  • The Starlink satellites are flaring quite spectacularly, up to around 2nd or 3rd Magnitude. Astrophotographers are going to hate that, but they're also stimulating people to 'get out and get looking up' at the night sky. They've spread out around a whole orbit now, 2nd June, 2019, so online orbital predictions about the 'first' and the 'last' one are becoming meaningless. They're visible beyond overhead at times, and pretty much right through the Summer night, here in Central England.

    • @Dave George The booster dumps this preburner exhaust right beside each nozzle, getting mixed into the flame. So the turbopump becomes more efficient at higher altitude. The vacuum engine expansion nozzle is cooled by this fuel-rich exhaust. That's why it doesn't glow near the tapering wrap-around tube. By reheating this waste, the nozzle achieves a still higher vacuum ISP.

    • @David Ogawa ,That HOT, I'd like to see a complete diagram, Thanks for the nugget. I saw a earlier SpaceX model that had a side turbo exhaust tube.

  • I'm pretty sure New Glenn is safely in the "Super Heavy Lift" category of rockets, because the payload numbers Blue Origin advertises are for reusable launches. If a New Glenn is expended, it could easily surpass the 50 mT to LEO threshold to be considered Super Heavy Lift.

    Admiral SequoiaAdmiral Sequoia9 aylar önce
    • @Odysseus Rex To my knowledge, they never said they were. Still, the class of the rocket is what it's capable of, not necessarily what it's sold to do. The Falcon 9 counts as a heavy lift rocket, but it's always sold in reusable configuration, which is only capable of medium launch payloads.
