SpaceX launches 53 Starlink internet satellites and lands rocket in foggy flight

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX just launched its second rocket this week, this time carrying a stack of Starlink satellites into orbit in a foggy flight, before sticking a booster landing at sea.

The previously-flown Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Space Launch Complex 40 here at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 7:19 a.m. EST (1219 GMT), marking the company’s 23rd launch of the year. It also marked this particular booster’s ninth flight.
