What is the mission of Falcon 9?

The Falcon 9 flight is a flight for space-based Internet communications systems.

A series of satellites for the mega-constellation Starlink – SpaceX’s project for a space-based Internet communications system.

The Falcon 9 begins its mission in the low earth orbit. This is located at an altitude of 200 to 2,000 kilometers. LEO railways have the lowest energy consumption and are the easiest to reach. Spacecraft take about 100 minutes to orbit the Earth and can travel at about 7 km/s. Radio contact with a ground station lasts a maximum of 15 minutes per circuit. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned space travel, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems and research and technology testing satellites.
