On July 20, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. EST, SpaceX launched the Anasis 2, or KMilSatCom 1, communications satellite for the South Korean military from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
The Falcon 9 first stage booster previously launched NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on the first manned test flight of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft.
Following stage separation, the Falcon 9 booster touched down on SpaceX’s drone ship “Just Read The Instructions” positioned several hundred miles off Cape Canaveral in the Atlantic Ocean.
Both halves of the Falcon 9 rocket payload fairing were caught using nets on-board SpaceX's two recovery ships "Ms. Chief" and "Ms. Tree" in the Atlantic Ocean. This is the first time both halves of the fairing have been recovered on the same mission.
