SpaceX launches 23 more Starlink internet satellites into space

LOS ANGELES, May 28 (Xinhua) -- U.S. private space company SpaceX launched 23 more Starlink satellites into orbit on Tuesday.

The satellites were launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida, according to SpaceX.

Minutes later, Falcon 9's first stage returned and landed on the "A Shortfall of Gravitas" droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the company.

SpaceX later confirmed the deployment of the 23 satellites.

Starlink will deliver high-speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable, according to SpaceX.
