The space company SpaceX successfully carried out the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket, which delivered 23 mini-satellites into orbit for the Starlink system, intended to provide global internet coverage.

The launch took place from the Vandenberg base in California, USA, in the early local time of the day.

These satellites will become part of the orbital grouping, increasing the total number of Starlink satellites in space to more than 5,500, of which more than 5,100 are operational.

This launch is the 129th for the Starlink project since May 2019 and the 60th this year.

An important feature of the mission is the use of a reusable first stage of the rocket, which is going to space for the 13th time.

After completing its task, this stage is to return to Earth, making a controlled landing on the floating drone platform Of Course I Still Love You in the Pacific Ocean.

"The New York Times" has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft Corp. and the developer of the chatbot ChatGPT, OpenAI, as reported by "Interfax-Ukraine".

The lawsuit, filed in the Federal Court of the Southern District of New York, alleges that ChatGPT and Microsoft's AI assistant Copilot illegally used the newspaper's content to create their products based on artificial intelligence.

The lawsuit claims that the large language models, which form the basis of the defendants' AI solutions, were trained using millions of articles, investigations, reviews, and other materials from "The New York Times", copyrighted, without permission.

The publication demands that Microsoft and OpenAI be held accountable for damages in the "billions of dollars" for this alleged infringement.
