LOS ANGELES - US private space company SpaceX launched 22 more Starlink satellites into orbit on Monday.

The satellites were launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket at 7:30 pm Pacific Time (0230 GMT Tuesday) Monday from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, according to SpaceX.

Falcon 9's first-stage booster landed on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

The company later confirmed the deployment of the 22 satellites.

Starlink will deliver high-speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive or completely unavailable, according to SpaceX.
