On Thursday, September 3 at 8:46 a.m. EDT, 12:46 UTC, SpaceX launched its twelfth Starlink mission, which launched 60 Starlink satellites to orbit. Falcon 9 lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported launch of the GPS III Space Vehicle 03 mission in June 2020. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
The Starlink satellites deployed approximately 15 minutes after liftoff.
