According to media reports, the Continuous Broadcast Augmenting SATCOM 2 (CBAS-2) satellite was sent into a geostationary orbit 35,000 kilometers above Earth through the mission. This satellite is said to provide communications relay capabilities to senior leaders and combatant commanders. Space Force officials told Space.com that the purpose of the CBAS-2 mission is to improve the communication capabilities of existing military satellites and to continuously transmit military data via satellites.
The Falcon Heavy rocket is SpaceX’s most powerful rocket. So far this rocket has made 5 launches and 11 landings.
The Falcon Heavy rocket can put around 64 metric tons into orbit. This is equivalent to the weight of 18,747 aircraft. SpaceX recently shared a video. This was related to his recent mission release. In the video, the company installed a camera on the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket. By recording that full video, a 90-second video was released for the people.
Apart from this, SpaceX has also recently launched 54 next-generation Starlink internet satellites. These SpaceX satellites are important because they are more powerful than the first generation models. They are said to be able to control more internet traffic and can deliver satellite internet service directly to people’s smartphones. These satellites are also called ‘Gen 2’. SpaceX received US government approval to launch 7,500 such units. The 54 satellites that have been launched in the past have been carried into space with the help of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.
