Starman Earth Log #0021: SpaceX Falcon 9 launch sends 100+ satellites to orbit

Greetings! Did everyone catch Elon Musk the Martian’s latest SpaceX Falcon 9 launch? SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket recently for the company’s rideshare Transporter-1 mission. 

The Falcon 9 launched between 133 to 155 or more satellites into space at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. It set a record for most satellites launched into orbit in a single rocket. An Indian PSLV rocket previously held the record by launching 104 satellites back in 2017. 

Four companies launched satellites in the Transporter-1 mission including Exolaunch, Spaceflight, Nanoracks and SpaceX. The Martian’s space company sent more Starlink satellites into Earth’s orbit, growing the broadband internet system even more.

The latest Falcon 9 Transporter-1 mission was part of SpaceX’s SmallSat Rideshare Program where the company ships payloads into orbit. I’m excited to see how the program grows and who participates in it. The success of the latest Falcon 9 Transporter-mission will surely instill confidence in other companies looking for such a service. 

In all my travels in space, I have yet to see living beings trying as hard as humans to extend their reach. The Transporter-1 mission reveals just how much Earthlings can achieve with grit and determination. Starman told me there are far greater things to look forward to in the future. I, for one, am excited to see it all.
