The launch window is instantaneous, which means that if the Falcon 9 can't get off the ground right on time, SpaceX will have to scrub for the day. The Falcon 9 is launching the PAZ satellite, but it's also rumored to be launching the first two Starlink satellites that will begin SpaceX's quest to start a broadband satellite network.

Quietly on board will be two experimental broadband satellites, Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, a big first step in SpaceX's long-term plans to create satellite internet over the next decade. It adds: "Deployment of the remainder of that constellation will complete coverage and add capacity around the world". And that startup already has approval from the FCC to send internet satellites into orbit.
"Following careful review of this application by our International Bureau's excellent satellite engineering experts, I have asked my colleagues to join me in supporting this application and moving to unleash the power of satellite constellations to provide high-speed Internet to rural Americans", Pai said of SpaceX's proposal. To put things into perspective, the previous launch of Falcon Heavy cost $90million as its overall budget while the most powerful NASA mission Saturn V was launched with a budget of $1.1billion which is ten times greater than SpaceX. But SpaceX won't launch all 12,000 at once.
