SpaceX's 'catchers mitt' drops the ball following PAZ launch

SpaceX is slated to launch more satellites - and not just test satellites, but ones that can actually offer Internet connection - into low-Earth orbit as early as 2019.

Southern Californians had been hoping for a repeat of the spectacle that occurred December 22 when a Falcon 9 lifted off at twilight during exceptionally clear weather, triggering a social media storm. "If successful, Starlink constellation will serve least served".

The statement from SpaceX and confirmation that the constellation would "provide people in low-to-moderate population densities around the world with affordable, high-speed Internet access" was a rare confirmation by the company hoping to take a slice of the communications industry.

SpaceX has the blessing of the Federal Communications Commission to send up the test satellites.

SpaceX anticipated the fairings' descent and are standing by with a specially equipped ship, called Mr. Steven, with a net that's created to catch at least one of the falling cones. SpaceX says they have a plan to deploy multitudes of the tiny satellites to achieve its aim of cheap connectivity. The rocket's first-stage booster launched the Taiwanese Earth-observing satellite Formosat-5 into orbit in August 2017 and returned to Earth, landing on one of SpaceX's drone-ship platforms.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said last week he supported SpaceX's proposed Starlink network, saying "to bridge America's digital divide, we'll have to use innovative technologies". A three-engine rocket blast was used to slow it down before impact.

SpaceX's first launch of the year from Vandenberg Air Force Base was delayed for a third time early Wednesday morning and is now scheduled for early Thursday.

The Falcon 9 launching Paz and the Starlink prototypes has flown in space before. SpaceX revolutionized the reusable rocket.

Musk announced on Twitter that the parafoil deployment occurred.

Trademark documents filed previous year - and tweets by Musk himself - revealed that SpaceX has settled on a name for the almost 12,000-satellite constellation that it will launch, operate and market to users: Starlink.

"Going to try to catch the giant fairing (nosecone) of Falcon 9 as it falls back from space at about eight times the speed of sound", Musk wrote on Instagram. The boosters - which account for about 60% of the cost of a rocket - are guided home so they can be is to reused on future missions, bringing down the price tag of a single launch.

Ultimately, SpaceX was unable to catch the payload fairing with the net on Mr. Steven, but it was close, according to Musk.

Earlier Musk had said that recovering payload fairing is pretty hard because the parachutes fitted to them tend to get twisted during descent. Another launch attempt yesterday was foiled by high winds.
