SpaceX: Falcon 9 Starlink Launch 

SpaceX is launching at their Falcon 9 rocket with 46 Starlink satellites to low earth orbit from the Vandenberg Space force base in California 

Falcon 9 will be launched from the Vandenberg Space Force Base which is just Northwest of Santa Barbana

What is Falcon 9?

Falcon 9 is the world's first orbital-class rocket that is capable of reflight

It is a two-space rocket that was designed and manufactured by SpaceX. It was first launched in 2012

The Vandenberg base station is a military base located along the central coast of the Pacific Ocean in California 

Its location is ideal because it allows for safe testing of land-based strategic deterrent assets and to safely place the satellite into polar orbit

SpaceX rolls out maritime internet services on the same day as another Starlink launch 

It is the only military base in the country that launches both unmanaged governments and commercial satellites into polar orbit.
