SPACE COAST DAILY TV: SpaceX successfully launched its sixth Starlink mission Wednesday morning aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – SpaceX successfully launched its sixth Starlink mission Wednesday morning aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Launch successfully lifted off at 8:16 a.m. ET.

Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the Iridium-7 NEXT mission in July 2018, the SAOCOM 1A mission in October 2018, the Nusantara Satu mission in February 2019, and the second launch of Starlink in November 2019.

Unfortunately, the first-stage recovery on drone ship ‘Of Course I Still Love You’ was unsuccessful.

Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported the first launch of Starlink in May 2019.

Approximately 45 minutes after liftoff, SpaceX’s fairing recovery vessels, “Ms. Tree” and “Ms. Chief,” will attempt to recover the two fairing halves.

The Starlink 5 mission will carry around 60 satellites for SpaceX’s Starlink broadband network.

Coverage of the launch was seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
