SpaceX has announced its plans to launch the Falcon 9 rocket from Florida’s Space Coast as part of another Starlink mission. The rocket will be carrying 23 Starlink satellites into orbit from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The scheduled liftoff is set for Friday night at 11 p.m., with backup opportunities available until Saturday at 2:59 a.m. Additional backup opportunities are also scheduled for Saturday starting at 11 p.m.
The 45th Weather Squadron has forecasted a 40% chance of weather interference for Friday night’s launch. However, this chance drops to just 10% if the launch is postponed until Saturday night. It’s worth noting that this mission will mark the 11th flight for the first-stage booster being used. The booster has previously been utilized in missions such as CRS-24, Eutelsat HOTBIRD 13F, OneWeb 1, SES-18, SES-19, and six other Starlink missions.
