What is Falcon 9's mission?

The Falcon 9 flight is a space-based Internet communications systems flight.

A series of satellites for the massive Starlink constellation – a SpaceX project for a space Internet communications system.

The Falcon 9 rocket begins its mission on Low Earth orbit. It is located at an altitude ranging from 200 to 2000 kilometers. LEO railways have the lowest energy consumption and are the easiest to access. The spacecraft takes about 100 minutes to orbit Earth and can travel at a speed of about 7 km/s. Radio communication with the ground station continues for a maximum of 15 minutes per circuit. Low Earth orbit is used primarily for manned space travel, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as Earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems, and research and technology testing satellites.
