A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched the first 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 10:30 p.m. on 23 May 2019. SpaceX’s Starlink is a planned satellite broadband network consisting of thousands of satellites capable of connecting the globe.

Falcon 9’s first stage for this mission previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018 and the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019. Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
