A SpaceX Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket will launch the Starlink 12 payload from Space Launch Complex 39A, Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA.
Starlink is a satellite constellation development project underway by American company SpaceX, to develop a low-cost, high-performance satellite bus and requisite customer ground transceivers to implement a new space-based Internet communication system. SpaceX also plans to sell satellites that use a satellite bus that may be used for military, scientific or exploratory purposes.

SpaceX Starlink 12 Launch 🔴 Live
The 12th operational batch of Starlink satellites (13th overall) will lift off from LC-39A at Kennedy Space Center, Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket. In the weeks following deployment the Starlink satellites will use onboard ion thrusters to reach their operational altitude of 550 km. This is the fourth batch of Starlink satellites which all feature "visors" intended to reduce their visibility from Earth. Falcon 9's first stage (B1058.3, the booster that has been used on the historic DM-2 mission) will attempt to land on a drone ship approximately 633 km downrange, its third landing overall, the ships are in place to attempt the recovery of both payload fairing halves. #SpaceX #Starlink #Starlink12 ➡️http://patreon.com/overlookhorizon ************************************************************** To learn more about our weather balloon flights, Arduino based flight computer, APRS transmitter, RTTY radio transmitter, ham radio balloon tracking methods or any of our other on-board technology and data sensors visit ➡️ http://overlookhorizon.com Connect with us

Pass The Torque S2 E10: Astronaut Tools — Justin Cassidy
When you work in space construction and repair, you won't find the right tools at the local hardware store. Goddard's Justin Cassidy designs astronaut tools. Hear from him and some of the astronauts he's worked with in this season-ending episode of "Pass the Torque.” Looking to hear about a specific topic? Check out the questions below! 00:43 Retired Astronaut Mike “Mass” Massimino 03:02 Can you tell us about what you do and your career at NASA? 03:56 Can you tell us about the tool development process? For astronauts? For robots? 06:05 How are tools tested before they’re used in space? How do astronauts learn to use them? 08:58 Astronaut Andrew “Drew” Morgan 11:12 What tool are you most proud of? 15:08 How do astronaut tools and robotic tools look different? 16:48 How do space tools and Earth tools look different? 17:58 Can you tell us about your Silver Snoopy award? 19:08 How have tools changed and developed since you first began working on the Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Missions? 19:52 What type of role do you think tools will play in the future of space exploration? 21:49 What do you do for fun outside of NASA?
