SpaceX Plans Another Falcon 9 Launch From Vandenberg Space Force Base

SpaceX is gearing up for another exciting launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base. The company has rescheduled the launch for Friday, January 19, and it is set to take place at 6:15 p.m. PT. The launch will see a Falcon 9 rocket carrying 22 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E).

This mission holds special significance as it marks the 16th flight for the first stage booster. The same booster has previously been used for missions such as Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, DART, Transporter-7, Iridium OneWeb, SDA-0B, and 10 Starlink missions. After stage separation, the first stage will attempt a landing on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

SpaceX will be providing a live webcast of the launch on their website, starting approximately five minutes before liftoff. Viewers will have the opportunity to witness the breathtaking sight of the Falcon 9 rocket propelling the Starlink satellites into space.

Although the original launch window was scheduled for Thursday evening, the decision to reschedule allows for better conditions and increased chance of a successful mission. Backup opportunities will be available until 9:58 p.m. PT on Friday.

For live updates and further information, SpaceX’s Twitter account (@SpaceX) will provide timely updates on the launch. Stay tuned for more exciting developments in SpaceX’s ambitious Starlink satellite project.
