SpaceX is scheduled to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral on Monday night.

The launch is set for 9:19 p.m. and part of its Starlink project to create a network that will help provide affordable internet across the globe.

SpaceX says Monday's rocket launch will send 60 more Starlink satellites into space.

The company is targeting Starlink internet service in the northern U.S. and Canada in 2020 and expanding to "near global coverage of the populated world by 2021."

As of November, SpaceX has deployed 122 satellites into space in connection with the project.
