A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 60 Starlink satellites into orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 1:19 a.m. on 4 February 2021. Following stage separation SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship located in the Atlantic Ocean.
The Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster previously flew on:

The Starlink satellites will eventually form a constellation around the Earth providing global satellite-based internet access.
