SpaceX Sets Record by carrying 143 satellites into orbit, including Aselsan satellite


SpaceX's rocket, which was recently scheduled to launch but was later delayed, took off this time. Rocket landing successfully completed.

SpaceX has successfully completed a shared satellite transport mission. 143 small satellites, including the Aselsan satellite, were launched into orbit with one of the firm's previously used rockets.

So SpaceX also managed to set a record. The US firm captured the title of the firm carrying the highest number of satellites in a single launch. After the successful completion of the mission, the rocket landed on the satellite ship at sea.

Two-stage rocket

The two-stage Falcon 9 rocket took off on January 24. The launch was carried out from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in California, USA. This mission, SpaceX's first fully dedicated launch, was called Transporter-1.

In this cosmic-scale version of the shared ride service, SpaceX also took 10 of its Starlink satellites into the atmosphere. The rocket, which emitted 143 satellites into the sky almost like a belt of stones, then returned to our planet.

It was the third launch the firm has made this year and the second launch it has made this week. On Wednesday, another Falcon 9 rocket and Starlink satellites were sent into orbit. The rocket used in that mission was also 8. it was the first spacecraft ever used.

Postponed due to weather

The mission, which carried a record number of satellites, was originally scheduled to be carried out on Saturday, but the mission was postponed due to poor weather at the launch site. The launch was carried out today as weather conditions became appropriate.

The rocket used in the mission is also one of the tools that the firm uses quite often. Previously used to transport astronauts, the rocket also had a NASA symbol on it. Among the payloads carried by the rocket, which was intercepted by the ship after launch, were the Aselsan satellite, the South Korean military satellite, and vehicles of other institutions.
