Billionaire Elon Musk‘s space exploration company SpaceX is putting the satellites into orbit in an aim to deliver high speed broadband to the whole of the earth before the end of 2020.
Starlink-8 was the eighth batch of satellites to go up, marking the company’s 540th satellite that has been put into space.
The rocket could be seen taking off from Cape Canaveral in Florida, then ascending up over the Atlantic Ocean, creating a glowing cloud, which people in multiple states, as far as Alabama could see.
The rocket’s exhaust created an incredible rainbow-coloured cloud over the sky.
The mission aims to eventually have tens of thousands of orbiting routers which are designed to improve the planet’s broadband internet access.
