US aerospace company SpaceX has sent a further 57 satellites into space for an earth-spanning internet network, launched on Friday in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
SpaceX postponed a launch of 60 satellites into low-Earth orbit that was scheduled for Thursday night, possibly until next week, citing a need for software updates.
Rocket Lab, a Silicon Valley-funded space launch company, on Thursday launched the maiden flight of its battery-powered, 3-D printed rocket from New Zealand's remote Mahia Peninsula.
India's space agency on Monday inserted eight satellites into two different orbits in one of its most complex and longest missions.
India successfully launched 20 satellites in a single mission on Wednesday, with most of them set to serve international customers as the South Asian country pursues a bigger share of the $300bn global space industry.
