Congratulations SpaceX – 23 more Starlink Satellites
SpaceFlightNow.com reported the launch as follows. “SpaceX lofted its third batch of Starlink satellites in a little more than four days, with a Falcon 9 lifting off from Cape Canaveral at 2:47 a.m. EST (0747 UTC) Wednesday morning.
The Starlink 6-29 mission was originally targeted for 11:01 p.m. EST (0401 UTC) on Tuesday night but SpaceX pushed back the launch twice. It was the third batch of Starlink Satellites to reach orbit in recent days. Just after midnight on Saturday morning 23 satellites lifted off from Cape Canaveral. That was followed by another 22 Starlinks launched from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California Monday morning. Wednesday morning’s launch carried an additional 23 satellites aloft.
The Falcon 9 rocket was lifted upright at Space Launch Complex 40 shortly before 10 p.m. EST (0300 UTC), much later than usual. The previous mission from pad 40 had lifted off just four days earlier making this the ninth fastest turnaround attempt for the launch facility.”
