SpaceX is set to launch another 60 Starlink satellites atop the company's Falcon 9 rocket. Following this flight, the number of Starlink internet satellites delivered into orbit will number 1,085, including the two prototype "Tintin" spacecraft in 2018. However, several have been deorbited over the years, so the number of active spacecraft will likely cross 1,000 for the first time after this mission. The company aims to launch at least 12,000 overall.
