SpaceX launches 60 mini satellites for cheaper global Internet



Elon Musk-run SpaceX has launched 60 "Starlink" satellites into low-Earth orbit from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida that will bring cheaper Internet access to the world.

The 60 mini satellites went into space aboard Falcon 9 rocket, ending a nearly 3-month launch hiatus for the company.

The "Starlink" satellites will be deployed at an altitude of 280 km to beam broadband Internet services.
