A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has launched with a third batch of 60 satellites for SpaceX's Starlink broadband network. The 60 mini internet satellites launched were covered in a dark coating which SpaceX agreed to test to satisfy astronomers who fear having the night skies filled with thousands of bright satellites in the future. There are now about 180 Starlink satellites in orbit.
