Liftoff of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Hispasat 30W-6 spacecraft from Launch Complex 40 is targeted for 12:35 a.m. on February 25, the opening of a two-hour launch window, News 6 partner Florida Today reported.

The Falcon 9 carrying Starlink satellites dubbed "Tintin A" and "Tintin B" were piggy-backed on the launch mission of Spanish Earth observation satellite PAZ.

SpaceX is one step closer to providing low-priced broadband internet access after launching the first two demonstration satellites for its planned satellite constellation Thursday morning.

On Board is a satellite PAZ Spanish company Hisdesat, as well as two satellites in the new project Starlink is creating a network of the global Internet.

The satellite will be Hispsat's 11th in orbit - more than double its total five years ago - which together distribute more than 1,250 TV and radio channels.

SpaceX's satellite broadband initiative differs mainly from existing approaches to space-based internet infrastructure by using small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), with a mean altitude of around 2,000 kilometres above Earth, to combat the latency traditionally associated with satellite-based internet service. "Moreover, Elon Musk also tweeted", After the launch of the boat, it missed catching the fairing by 100 some meters".

Test stations will be located in Hawthorne and Fremont in California; McGregor and Brownsville, Texas; and Redmond, Wash., where SpaceX has an office dedicated to satellite development.

CEO Elon Musk said two engines were taken out when the heavy-lift rocket's middle booster smashed into the water nearby at 300 miles per hour, spraying debris.

The two satellites will try to deliver the message "Hello, world" when they pass near Los Angeles on Friday morning, Musk said.

The satellite will successfully bring high speed net to millions and even billions of people across the globe.

Thursday's launch was originally scheduled for last Saturday. However, the private space firm made a decision to scrap the launch saying it needed extra time to test the rocket's payload fairing.
