A group of more than 1,800 satellites currently provides Internet services to more than 140,000 customers around the world.

The demand for the service appears to be high. p>
SpaceX's previous record for orbital launches in a calendar year was 26 in 2020. After Saturday's Starlink mission, the company will likely have five more launches this year.

Next, four more Falcon 9 missions are scheduled to begin from Florida in December, including another Starlink flight, NASA's IXPE X-ray telescope, the Turksat 5B communications satellite, and a cargo mission to the station's international space. p> < p> This gives SpaceX a chance to reach 30 orbital flights by 2021.
