On July 24, 2022 at 9:38 a.m. ET, SpaceX launched 53 Starlink satellites from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
This was the eighth 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 three 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.
