"Starlink works great until the cats find out that the dish gives off a little heat on cold days," said the Twitter post.
Iranian officials announced the launch Thursday, without disclosing when or where it took place, or what devices were on the onboard satellite carrier.
The Falcon 9 launch on Thursday, the 27th launch of 2021 for Elon Musk's SpaceX, with five more planned in what remains of the year.
When the launch takes places, viewers will be able to watch the Falcon 9 lift off before it deploys a batch of 53 Starlink broadband satellites.
Chinese researchers said the Defense Department will need at least 10 times the number of satellites it's planning to build.
Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, Iran's telecommunications minister, denied a failed satellite launch and offered no further explanation for the activity at the Imam Khomeini Spaceport.
Scientists used a fiery wind tunnel to find out how satellites break apart when they leave orbit and fall back to Earth.
The rocket will be carrying three national security payloads for the National Reconnaissance Office.
On March 24, 2006, the company launched its first Falcon 1 rocket, but the mission was unsuccessful.
SpaceX is planning to deploy tens of thousands of Starlink satellites in low Earth orbit.
The object, which is estimated to measure between 15-33 feet across, was discovered on September 17, 2020.
Russian state media reported that a little-known private space firm called Success Rockets was planning to launch 558 satellites.
The combined mass of both objects is roughly 2.8 metric tons.
Wildfire smoke from the west coast has reached as far east as the Great Lakes region.
"It's almost a complete disaster," said Chris Luz, the mayor of Phoenix, Oregon.
The South Atlantic Anomaly was discovered in the 1950s and appears to be splitting into two patches.
Saturday's Falcon 9 rocket launch is scheduled for lift off, weather permitting, at 5:21 a.m. EDT.
The experimental system is designed to keep the antennae of the satellites in the shade, thereby preventing sunlight from reflecting off them back to Earth.
"I have never seen aerosol values so low in the Indo-Gangetic Plain at this time of year," said NASA scientist Pawan Gupta.
Starlink is a project that involves sending thousands of mass-produced satellites into orbit with the aim of providing high-speed internet coverage across the globe.
The newest branch of the American military is reportedly developing a suite of ground weapons that can jam satellite signals during orbital conflict.
These projects could have a significant effect on wide-field surveys which are key for observing potentially hazardous asteroids.
If the two objects did collide, "there would be thousands of pieces of new debris that would stay in orbit for decades," said Dan Ceperley from LeoLabs.
The aim of Starlink is to provide global internet coverage from space with very short lag times.
The FCC filed paperwork with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on behalf of SpaceX, requesting permission for the production and deployment of 30,000 Starlink satellites.
Geomagnetic jerks were first discovered in the 1970s—but their cause has been unknown until now.
The company hopes it will be able to accommodate space-tourists by 2022.
