BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The Falcon 9 booster from SpaceX’s Starlink launch last week has arrived in Port Canaveral aboard drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You.”

The booster landed on the drone ship in the Atlantic on May 23, just minutes after having propelled 60 Starlink satellites into orbit.

SpaceX’s Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of connecting the globe, especially reaching those who are not yet connected, with reliable and affordable broadband internet services.

Falcon 9’s first stage for this mission previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018 and the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019.
