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 Musk said 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.

A SpaceX launch in California on Thursday was part of another first for the private launch company.

"High altitude wind shear data shows a probably 2% load exceedance".

A SpaceX rocket preparing for launch in 2017. Musk said in a tweet on February 21. Small, but better to be paranoid.

A video of the launch of a SpaceX rocket with two experimental satellites on board has been shared by Redditor tKMagus, who expressed admiration of the process. "PST from Vandenberg Air Force Base".

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 fairing costs $6M per launch so it makes sense to try and reuse that has well to further drive down launch costs.

While Elon Musk's aerospace company prides itself on its recycled rockets, and their often impressive ability to land and recover entire rockets for future use, their attempt to capture the Falcon 9's $6 million nose cone failed and it splashed into the Pacific Ocean.

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.

OneWeb already has obtained approval from the Federal Communications Commission for its internet project. These are the first in the space exploration firm's dream of using an army of satellites to beam high-speed internet to Earth from space.
