On Monday, SpaceX launched 60 satellites into orbit. It is the fourth launch in the company´s Starlink mission. The goal is to create a constellation of satellites that will offer worldwide high-speed internet.

The SpaceX rocket launched from Florida, and later it returned to Earth. However, the rocket missed its landing mark on a waiting drone ship, and it fell into the Atlantic.

SpaceX already has about 300 satellites in orbit and plans to launch thousands more. The company said that internet service from its satellites could be available in the northern US and Canada this year.

Difficult words: satellite (a man-made or natural object that goes around a planet or a sun), orbit (the path through which objects follow around a planet or a star that has gravity), constellation (a group of similar things).
