BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket Sunday morning from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
Falcon 9’s first stage booster previously supported launch of Crew Dragon’s second demonstration mission, the ANASIS-II mission, a Starlink mission, and launch of Dragon’s 21st cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station.
Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
On board this launch were 133 commercial and government spacecraft (including CubeSats, microsats, and orbital transfer vehicles) and 10 Starlink satellites – the most spacecraft ever deployed on a single mission.
The Starlink satellites aboard this mission were the first in the constellation to deploy to a polar orbit.
Coverage of the launch was shown on Space Coast Daily TV.
