On Friday, August 19 at 3:21 p.m. ET, SpaceX launched 53 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

This was the ninth flight for the Falcon 9 first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, and now four Starlink missions.

Following stage separation, the Falcon 9 booster touched down on SpaceX’s drone ship A Shortfall Of Gravitas positioned in the Atlantic Ocean.
