reported the launch as follows. “SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket on Tuesday night, 14 years to the day when the rocket made its launch debut from the same pad. Since that day, SpaceX launched more than 340 Falcon 9 rockets, 285 of which were using previously flown boosters.

The Starlink 8-5 mission lifted off from pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 10:16 p.m. EDT (0216 UTC).

The Falcon 9 first stage booster, tail number B1067 in the SpaceX fleet, launched for a 20th time. It previously supported the flights of two Crew Dragon astronaut missions, two Cargo Dragon resupply missions to the International Space Station and 10 previous Starlink delivery runs.

About 8.5 minutes after liftoff, B1067 landed on the SpaceX droneship ‘Just Read the Instructions.’ This was the 83rd landing using JRTI and the 316th booster landing to date.

Onboard the Falcon 9 flight were 20 Starlink V2 Mini satellites, including 13 that feature direct to cellphone capabilities.”
