On Friday, June 17 at 12:09 p.m. ET, SpaceX launched 53 Starlink satellites from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

This was the 13th flight for the Falcon 9 first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched GPS 111-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, and now 10 Starlink missions.


Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on SpaceX drone ship A Shortfall of Gravitas, stationed several hundred miles offshore in the Atlantic Ocean.
