BREVARD COUNTY, PORT  CANAVERAL • FLORIDA – The Eagle, The Elizabeth S, The Christine S, The Finn Falgout and The Pilot Boat recently assisted a SpaceX booster into Port Canaveral that carried a Falcon 9 that lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018, the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019, and three separate Starlink missions in May 2019, January 2020, and June 2020.

Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Falcon 9’s fairing previously flew on the fourth launch of Starlink and one of SpaceX’s fairing recovery vessels, Ms. Tree, caught a fairing half after launch.

Planet’s SkySats deployed sequentially about 12 and a half minutes after liftoff, and the Starlink satellites deployed approximately 46 minutes after liftoff.
