Today at 3:30pm EDT, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket will launch from LC-39A with another 60 satellites for their Starlink constellation. Despite the ongoing pandemic, they are quickly moving along with launch operations and are on-track to launch this afternoon. After stage separation, the first stage will make an ocean landing on their droneship "Of Course I still Love You" stationed out in the Atlantic Ocean.



The first stage on this mission was previously flown on 3 missions; It supported the first Demo Mission of Crew Dragon, RADARSAT, and the 4th Starlink launch. The fairings have also been reused, and were flown on the Amos-17 mission.
