    Elon Musk's company had its busiest year ever in 2020 and is gearing up for even more launches in 2021.


    Elon Musk's SpaceX started 2021 off by sending a new communications satellite to space for the nation of Turkey on Thursday night. 

    Turksat 5A is the first of a pair of next-generation broadcasting birds that SpaceX will boost to orbit.  The Falcon 9 elevating it to orbit lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
