SpaceX Plans to Launch 71 Satellites at Once


SpaceX is planning to launch a Falcon 9 rocket next week with 71 small satellites on it. The entire rocket was bought out by Spaceflight Industries, a company that bills itself as a ride sharing company for spacecraft.

Dubbed the "SmallSat Express," the upcoming mission, which is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:32 p.m. EST Monday, will put 71 small satellites for 35 different companies and organizations, ranging from 11 pounds to 660 pounds each, into sun synchronous orbits.
