Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp. launched the RadarSat Constellation Mission, carrying Canada's new generation of Earth-observation satellites.
SpaceX set a company record last year with 21 launches for customers. Last month, the Hawthorne, California-based company sent up the first batch of its own satellites, a key step toward creating a space-based constellation that beams broadband to underserved areas across the globe.
SpaceX completed the Demo-1 flight of its 'Crew Dragon' without humans on board in March. But in late April, the capsule was engulfed in flames and destroyed during a test, a mishap that probably will push back the commercial crew schedule. NASA and SpaceX are reevaluating target test dates.
