SpaceX Plans Early-Morning Starlink Launch from Florida

In the predawn hours of Friday, SpaceX initiated yet another mission from Florida’s Space Coast. A Falcon 9 rocket soared into the sky, carrying with it a payload of 23 Starlink satellites destined for orbit.

The majestic liftoff occurred at 5:12 a.m. from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Following a flawless ascent, the first stage of the Falcon 9 gracefully descended and landed on a drone ship stationed in the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean mere minutes after the launch.

This latest launch event comes on the heels of SpaceX’s remarkable Falcon 9 double-header just a week prior.

The first launch, which involved the EUTELSAT 36D mission, took place at Kennedy Space Center on a Saturday. Subsequently, another Falcon 9 rocket embarked on a mission to deploy 23 additional Starlink satellites from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

Noteworthy is the remarkable reusability of SpaceX’s equipment. The first-stage booster utilized in this mission has now completed its 14th flight.
