reported the launch as follows. “The Starlink 6-60 mission will add another 23 spacecraft to the company’s growing mega-constellation of internet relay satellites, serving more than three million customers. SpaceX launched the Falcon 9 rocket at 10:24 a.m. EDT (1424 UTC) from pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Tuesday.

The Falcon 9 first stage booster, tail number B1078 in the SpaceX fleet, launched for a 10th time. Its previous launches included the Crew-6 astronaut mission to the International Space Station; USSF-124, the second SpaceX mission under the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) Phase 2 contract; and six Starlink missions.

A little more than eight minutes after liftoff, B1078 touched down on the SpaceX droneship, ‘A Shortfall of Gravitas.’ It marked the 72nd booster landing for ASOG and the 313th booster landing for SpaceX to date.

The mission was also SpaceX’s 55th Falcon 9 launch of the year, which brings the company up to a launch rate of a Falcon flight roughly every 2.7 days on average. At this pace, they would launch 135 times by the end of the year, approaching the 144 launch goal laid out by Bill Gerstenmaier during his testimony in front of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee in October 2023.”
