A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 53 Starlink satellites into orbit on the Starlink 4-25 mission on 24 July 2022 at 9:38 a.m. from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center. After stage separation, the first stage booster successfully landed on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This was the eighth flight for the Falcon 9 first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, and now three Starlink missions.

Falcon 9 passes through the sound barrier.
