The SpaceX launch left a wild phenomenon in the sky like a Falcon 9 rocket travel to space Neck break speeds.
Clear weather conditions and early morning sunlight lit up the rocket’s exhaust plume, creating the “space jellyfish”.
On average, Elon Musk and SpaceX will launch a rocket once a week this year.
This morning, a Falcon 9 rocket Carries 53 Starlink satellites It was launched successfully and left behind a wonderful glow in the sky.
“Basically, what happens is, it’s still dark outside, but you have the sun lighting up the shaft as it is in space,” said a SpaceX executive.
The rocket took off at 5:43 am this morning from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
When a Falcon 9 rocket blasts off with a thrust of nearly two million pounds, the fuel explodes in the combustion chamber.
In a paper I published Glenn Research Center, NASA wrote: “The combustion produces a hot exhaust that passes through a nozzle to accelerate the flow and produce thrust.”
The hot exhaust was lit as the Falcon 9 reached the heights as sunlight began to fill the early morning sky.
Musk tweeted “Another Starlink mission completed” after the satellites were deposited into orbit.
Starlink is a subdivision of SpaceX that broadcasts high-speed Internet to customers around the world via satellite.
Musk got heroic treatment from the press when he was Starlink Fast Track Stations to Ukraine at the beginning of the Russian invasion.
This latest payload adds to the 132 metric tons of equipment that SpaceX is depositing into low Earth orbit.
The next launch is scheduled for May 10 – another round of Starlink satellites will blast off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
As SpaceX and Starlink lead the way on the satellite bundle, space company Jeff Bezos is gaining ground.
Project Kuiper is an Amazon project Internet from space initiative and have been granted authorization by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to put more than 3,000 satellites into low Earth orbit.
