    Aeronautical company SpaceX has launched its Falcon 9 recyclable rocket into space from Cape Canaveral in Florida, with a new batch of 52 satellites for its Starlink internet network


    In addition to the satellites to provide broadband internet, the rocket was attached to a Capella Synthetic Aperture radar satellite and what's known as "an optical spectrum astronomical observation nanosatellite".

    Eight minutes 30 seconds later the reusable part of the rocket completed its return to successfully land on a floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean.
