Elon Musk’s SpaceX will launch a recycled Falcon 9 rocket this morning from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California.

More crucially, the payload will also include experimental satellites for SpaceX’s “Starlink” project, which will test the company’s ambitious plan to provide broadband internet from space. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is pushing his agency to approve the plan.
