The satellites were onboard a Falcon 9 rocket that blasted off from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center.

Liftoff took place at 6:59am EDT (10:59am GMT).

The Falcon 9 then landed back on Earth an impressive nine minutes later.

It landed perfectly on a pad in the Atlantic Ocean.

Musk now has over 2,300 Starlink satellites in orbit.

The aim is for them to provide cheap internet for people who need it in remote locations.

SpaceX has launched 21 missions this year alone.

Musk hopes to have a constellation of about 30,000 satellites in the future.

SpaceX prides itself on its reusable rockets that can be used for multiple missions.

Musk is a big advocate of reusable spaceflight tech and thinks it could be key for sustainable space exploration and taking humans to Mars.
