According to reports, The company with the help of Elon Musk's vision wants to create a giant constellation of almost 12,000 satellites that will orbit above Earth, allowing internet connectivity to antenna receivers on the planet's surface. SpaceX will send the Falcon 9 rocket into orbit along with the observational satellite, PAZ, and two other demonstration satellites.
SpaceX confirmed in a tweet on Tuesday that the rocket will take off on Wednesday if all goes according to plan. The first stage's nine Merlin 1D engines produce about 1.7 million pounds of thrust.The Falcon 9's nine Merlin 1D engines shut down. Now, the company is planning same for the fairing.
Following the successful launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket earlier this month, CEO Elon Musk admitted that fairing recovery has been almost impossible due to the parachutes being twisted during descent.
According to SeaTran, the company that owns Mr. Steven, the vessel is 205 feet (62 meters) long, can travel up to 32 knots (36.8 miles per hour, or about 59 km/h) and has a deck measuring 136 feet by 27 feet (41 by 8 m).

SpaceX is all about reducing the cost of launching things into space, and right now one of those costs it think it can eliminate is having to use a new fairing every time it launches a rocket.
Earlier this month, the company announced that they are close to making payload fairing recoveries possible. The test mission was an incredible success. Martin Elvis from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics believes that the Falcon Heavy rocket can manage to land the equipment easily on an asteroid, though it also depends on a lot of other factors. Along with that, a Spanish radar observation named Pax will also fly to space aboard the Falcon 9 rocket. That first stage booster had carried the Taiwanese Formosat-5 satellite to space in August 2017.
FCC chairman Ajit Pai praised the so-called Starlink project for attempting to bring internet into those parts of the U.S. where it is a rare commodity.
For several years, Musk has planned to launch more than 4,000 internet-beaming satellites in a bid to create high-speed broadband from space.
