Tuesday, May 4th, marked yet another successful “push” event for SpaceX. The company launched additional Starlink smallsats, 60 in number, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster empowering this mission previously supported the launch of Telstar 18 VANTAGE, Iridium-8 and six Starlink missions.
Following stage separation, SpaceX landed the Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, located in the Atlantic Ocean. One half of this Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported two earlier Starlink missions.
