Shrugging off a Falcon 9 launch abort last week and a scrub Monday, SpaceX fired 60 more Starlink internet satellites into orbit Tuesday, the 13th batch in a fast-growing global network of broadband relay stations. CBS Los Angeles reports.
After six years, two successful test flights and a multibillion-dollar investment in American enterprise, NASA launched four astronauts to the International Space Station on Sunday, the first government-certified flight of a commercially developed SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft.
Four astronauts blasted off from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sunday night, riding atop a SpaceX Falcon rocket. They should reach the International Space Station late Monday for a five- to six-month stay. (Nov. 15)
Four new crew members, three Americans and one from Japan, boarded the International Space Station Tuesday after arriving there on board SpaceX's newly launched capsule. Their automated flight from NASA's Kennedy Space Center took 27 hours. (Nov. 17)
