SpaceX sends 23 more Starlink satellites into orbit on Leap Day

 On Leap Day, SpaceX launched twenty-three more Starlink high-speed internet satellites into space. 

 The satellites, which now number 5,504, were launched from a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station yesterday at 10:30 a.m.  

 In order to create a massive constellation that will allow anybody to have access to high-speed internet, SpaceX plans to launch 42,000 satellites into low Earth orbit.  

 At Cape Canaveral, Florida, Space Launch Complex 40 served as the launchpad for the Falcon 9 rocket.  

 Starlink 6-40 mission was scheduled to be SpaceX's first of two launches in a 24-hour span.  

 However, as per Space.com, the NASA Crew-8 mission, scheduled to launch shortly after midnight this morning, was rescheduled till Saturday night, March 2,,,

 due to concerns raised by harsh offshore weather during launch abort scenarios.  

 In addition, NASA stated that it would assess ways to lessen the effect of the cancellation on the employees at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
