SpaceX’s launch left a wild phenomenon in the sky like a Falcon 9 rocket space travel Neck breaking speeds.
Clear weather and early morning sunlight illuminated the rocket’s exhaust plume, creating the “space jellyfish.”
On average, Elon Musk and SpaceX will launch a rocket once a week this year.
This morning, a Falcon 9 rocket Transporte 53 satellites Starlink It was launched successfully and left behind a magnificent glow in the sky.
“Basically what’s happening is it’s still dark outside, but you have the sun illuminating the well as it is in space,” a SpaceX executive said.
The rocket lifted off this morning at 5:43 a.m. from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
When a Falcon 9 rocket lifts off with nearly two million pounds of thrust, fuel explodes in the combustion chamber.
In an article I published Glenn Research Center, NASA wrote: “Combustion produces hot exhaust that passes through a nozzle to accelerate the flow and produce thrust. »
The hot exhaust was lit as the Falcon 9 reached high ground as sunlight began to fill the early morning sky.
Musk tweeted “Another Starlink mission completed” after the satellites were dropped into orbit.
Starlink is a subdivision of SpaceX that delivers high-speed internet to customers around the world via satellite.
Musk received heroic treatment from the press when he was Gares Fast Track Starlink in Ukraine at the start of the Russian invasion.
This latest payload is in addition to the 132 tonnes of equipment that SpaceX is depositing in low Earth orbit.
The next launch is scheduled for May 10 – another set of Starlink satellites will lift off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
As SpaceX and Starlink lead the way on the satellite bouquet, space company Jeff Bezos is gaining traction.
The Kuiper project is an Amazon project internet from space initiative and have obtained authorization from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to place more than 3,000 satellites in low Earth orbit.
