U.S.-based rocket and spacecraft company SpaceX early Tuesday launched 60 satellites into orbit as part of a planned broadband global internet service.

The Starlink satellites, launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket, are designed to send internet signals, according to SpaceX’s official website.

After stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on a droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.

The launch means there are now 180 SpaceX satellites in orbit, giving the company the largest commercial satellite fleet in orbit.
