SpaceX launches 143 satellites, successfully completes record-setting mission

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully completed a mission to deploy 143 spacecraft and satellites into orbit on Sunday, after which the rocket returned safely to a sea-based landing pad.

The two-stage Falcon 9 rocket took flight on its ‘Transporter-1’ mission after weather considerations caused the planned launch on Saturday to be scrapped.

Falcon 9 carried 133 commercial and government spacecraft, and 10 ‘Starlink’ satellites – the most spacecraft ever deployed on a single mission, according to SpaceX.

Sunday’s mission was the fifth successful launch and landing for Falcon 9, the company said.
