On Friday, a 230-foot SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched dozens of Starlink internet satellites into orbit.

The launching was done just hours after astronauts returned from the International Space Station.

Dedicated flight for Starlink, a SpaceX-built network of satellites, flew for the 45th time from Kennedy Space Center's pad 39A.

The primary objective of the satellites is to provide internet connectivity to consumers on the ground.

SpaceX has launched some 2,500 satellites for Starlink till now. 

The constellation now has around 2,000 satellites due to declining orbits and failures.

The four astronauts who went to space last year were returned successfully in their SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule.
