Starlink Mission

Starlink Mission

On Tuesday, January 18 at 9:02 p.m. EST, Falcon 9 launched 49 Starlink satellites to low Earth orbit from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This was the tenth launch and landing of this Falcon 9 first stage booster, which has launched GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, and now seven Starlink missions.

    25:54 – so awesome to see!! coming though the clouds and landing without signal delay!

    It’s crazy that SpaceX has landed several boosters now TEN times!! Even more crazy that Falcon landing has become such a regular thing that it barely makes any headlines. I can’t wait to see how many flights these boosters can do!

      @Man Bear Pig or a falcon superheavy with 5 boosters

    • Anthony Losego says:

      @sam I think he meant a triple super heavy, which would be 99 Raptor engines, and to have all three land in the same place at once. Yes, that would make the news… lol

      I don’t think they would ever need a triple SH booster. 150T to orbit is probably enough. Also, a FH is 27 engines while a single SH booster is 33… Raptors. So yeah, they are doing a lot of engines again. In fact, that will be the new normal. Payloads will be cheaper to be 100T on Starship than 2T on F9.

      @AlienVibes it was watching the Apollo 8 as a kid that got me hooked !! Looking forward to Skyrora launch later in the year hopefully!! Finally to see a launch on my shores!!

    20:35 first/second stages and fairings! Just amazing.

    I’ll never get tired of watching the boosters land. It’s amazing!

    the IR video of second stage was great, and one of the best drone ship landing coverage to date!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Never gets old!
    I’ve watched every launch and the shots of the exhaust plumes or RCS thrusters is beautiful.
    My Dad was an engineer with NASA Engineering and Development and died a couple of years after the shuttle program ended. He wasn’t a drone collecting a paycheck, he was a believer and dreamer into our exploration of space. He’d be so excited and proud of what SpaceX has accomplished with reusable boosters.

    20:40 its so cool to see all the separated components in a single shot (stage 1, stage 2 and the 2 fairings)

    Seeing the Falcon 9 lands for the 100+ time still amazes me..Never gets old. Way to go spacex!

  9. irrefudiate says:

    That ground shot of stage separation was amazing. And the second stage hauling ass away from the booster and fairing halves. Wow, they’re getting good at this stuff. Three flights in three weeks. That doesn’t seem possible.

    This is amazing and never gets old. GO SPACEX!!
