So in the wee hours of this morning SpaceX completed another successful Starlink mission - deployed 57 satellites.
This means there are nearly 600 Starlinks orbiting the Earth (5 of which have been deorbited since launch)
Normally SpaceX would send up 60 at a time. On this mission they launched 57 as they were carrying two satellites for a customer.
Of course, Starlink has been controversial in some quarters with concerns raised from the astronomy community as the effect of the satellites are having on viewing the cosmos.
On this mission all 57 Starlinks had their own sunshade - a visor that is designed to significantly cut down on the reflected light.
This video will cover the launch and landing of the SpaceX Falcon 9 as well as the deployment of the Starlink satellites
