Early Saturday evening, SpaceX hopes to embark on its 28th Starlink mission, sending another cluster of 60 broadband internet network satellites into orbit aboard a Falcon 9 rocket.
That launch is at 6:54 p.m. ET and will lift off from Launch Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center.
Then, on Monday, United Launch Alliance hopes to send up an Atlas V rocket with the S-B-I-R-S GEO-5 missile detection and early warning satellite for the U.S. Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center. The rocket is poised to lift off from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
That launch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. ET.

Those starlink missions are a lot of fun. And regular as clockwork.
Who is paying for all this?
Um, 52 satellites, not 60. The journalist did not do proper research.
I thought you were.
52 so 5 shy of one for each state
Guam will need a submarine.
I would prefer my tax dollars to towards space and technology, rather than the welfare state or pentagon.
We have wasted much time since the Apollo program, private companies like SpaceX are pushing towards the future.
SpaceX / Starlink is causing the internet companies to boost their speed for a lower price. For $60 I now have 467mbs for the next 36 months from Spectrum. I wanted 200mbs for that price but after being told it would happen in about 1.5/hrs and it did not so when I called the next day (mothers day) the retention guy for the same price doubled that speed : )
I also have a ATT fiber optic line on the telephone. Competition works!
Buy the stock when it becomes available some day. It will be the biggest internet and cell phone provider in the world. The stock will just go up and up.
So to answer your question. You will be by buying the stock and their service.
