60 satellites were launched on the first Falcon, but the operator did not provide any identification information to be able to distinct each satellite. All satellites are said to have communicated with ground stations, 45 have reached their intended orbits, but 4 had issues and could not raise their orbit (2 have passively failed). 227 kg each
