CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (CNN) – SpaceX has launched a record number of satellites using a single rocket.
The company’s Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Sunday.
The rocket carried 143 satellite devices to space. That’s a record number of satellites ever deployed on a single mission, according to SpaceX.
The mission is part of SpaceX’s new rideshare business strategy: to make regularly scheduled launches carrying batches of small satellites, rather than single large payloads.
