A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched the Transporter-5 mission on 25 May 2022 at 2:35 p.m. from Space Launch Complex-40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Transporter-5 is SpaceX’s fifth dedicated smallsat rideshare program mission. On board this flight were 59 spacecraft, including CubeSats, microsats, non-deploying hosted payloads, and orbital transfer vehicles.

This was the eighth launch and landing of this Falcon 9 stage booster, which previously supported launch of Crew-1, Crew-2, SXM-8, CRS-23, IXPE, one Starlink mission, and Transporter-4.

Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
