Nine SpaceX Starlink Satellite Launches In Next Ten Months

•, by Brian Wang

Fifty of the sixty Starlink satellites from the May 2019 launch are still in operation and remain in their intended orbits.

SpaceX will have seven Starlink launches in the first half of 2020. They will be part of 14 SpaceX launches in the first half of 2020.

This would put 540 Starlink Satellites into orbit by the middle of 2020 which should be enough for the start of commercial operations for the Starlink system. Starlink can begin offering commercial broadband services in northern US and southern Canada after 360 satellites are operating in orbit.

SpaceX plans to increase the Falcon launch frequency to 20 launches per year from LC-39A and up to 50 launches per year from LC-40 by the year 2024.

SpaceX plans to launch the Super Heavy Starship up to 24 times per year from LC-39A. This was reported in the environmental study for the Super-Heavy Starship.
