At 9:48 p.m. on Wednesday, SpaceX intends to launch 54 more Starlink broadband satellites from Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

According to the mission plan, a Falcon 9 rocket will launch the Starlink Group 4-34 satellites into orbit.

About nine minutes later, the rocket's first stage landed on the Just Read the Instructions droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.

The 230-foot rocket leaving pad 40 has to launch inside an immediate window; else, it will have to wait until the next day.

It will be this booster's sixth launch and landing, according to a mission description from SpaceX.

SpaceX's array of broadband satellites is called Starlink.  Over 3,200 of the satellites have now been sent into orbit by the corporation.

Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, recently declared his desire to launch up to 100 SpaceX flights in 2023.

The government has already given SpaceX permission to deploy 12,000 Starlink satellites.

Additionally, the business has asked a global authority for permission to launch 30,000 more of the satellites into space.
