The two demonstration satellites launched Thursday are meant to test the spacecrafts' design, structure and subsystems.
In past missions these have fallen back to Earth and sunk, but Musksaid at the Falcon Heavy launch that he wanted to get a system in place to reuse them. In comparison, the Indian Space Research Organisation's GSLV Mark-III, the rocket with maximum payload carrying capacity, can hoist only about 10 tonnes payload to low Earth orbit.
Musk's envisioned "Starlink" array would include up to almost 12,000 satellites circling Earth in a low orbit within about six years, creating a worldwide internet system. You can watch live webcasts from spacex.com. The rocket fairingcosts $6M per launch so it makes sense to try and reuse that has well to further drive down launch costs.
The total cost of the launch is estimated to reach £44 million ($61 million). However, it never happened as the "stage broke apart before we could complete an unplanned recovery effort for this mission", SpaceX said then.
"Falcon 9 is the first orbital class rocket capable of spaceflight".
Despite having recovered the rocket's first stage (what powers it out of our atmosphere, ) no attempt was made to collect it again this time around.
The satellites are created to test Starlink, a concept to bathe all of Earth in high-speed broadband internet using a fleet of 12,000 satellites.
