The satellites will add to the more than 700 already in space to soon form a large orbital, broadband network to provide internet service to underserved areas around the globe.
Eventually, some 12,000 will round out the constellation.
Less than ten minutes after the launch, the Falcon 9 first stage booster returned and landed on SpaceX's ocean faring drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You" positioned out in the Atlantic.
It's the 6th launch and landing for this booster.
