A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 23 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 8:32 p.m. on 17 May 2024. After stage separation, Falcon 9's booster landed on the A Shortfall Of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This was the 21st flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, OneWeb Launch 17, ARABSAT BADR-8, and now 14 Starlink missions.
