SpaceX's second Starlink mission in six days, and the company's tenth since January 1, began with a thundering blastoff.

Black stated, "It's time to let the American broomstick fly and hear the sound of freedom." "The launch director (LD) is ready to go."

The remark was in response to a statement made by Rogozin, the president of Russia's space agency, who stated last week that Russia would no longer sell rocket engines to the US.
