So, did the V 0.9 satellites end up in 3 planes at 550 km?
With the reentry of Starlink-24 on Oct 24 after 3.4 years in space, all 60 payloads from the initial V0.9 Starlink launch in May 2019 have now reentered the atmosphere, including the failed ones. The 4 deployment rods from the launch remain in orbit. 10/26/2022
I don't understand 'including the failed ones'. Aren't they all 'failed'? Or were they deliberately de-orbited?
Most of them were deliberately lowered to reentry, since they were prototypes and didn't have full capability to support the constellation
