SpaceX successfully launched 35 satellites into orbit Saturday night — including an enormous test satellite built to supply power to smartphones in distant areas.
The AST SpaceMobile’s Blue Walker 3 is the dimensions of a studio apartment and unfolds right into a flat 693-square-foot screen that may produce artificial light that outshines all of the night stars within the sky, in response to Fast Company.
Elon Musk’s company also launched 34 Starlink web satellites from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida at 9:20 p.m. with a Falcon 9 booster on its 14th mission, setting a rocket reuse record, SpaceX said.

The Falcon 9 landed on a droneship within the Atlantic Ocean after liftoff, the space company reported.
The brand new Starlink satellites joined a constellation of about three thousand others in low Earth orbit, providing web access to greater than 400,000 subscribers, in response to SpaceX.
