U.S. private space company SpaceX launched 23 more Starlink satellites into orbit on Wednesday, reported Xinhua.

The satellites were launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in the U.S. state of Florida at 2:47 a.m. Wednesday Eastern Time, according to SpaceX.

Falcon 9's first stage returned and landed on A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

The company later confirmed the deployment of the 23 satellites.

Starlink will deliver high-speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable, according to SpaceX.
