CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket from the Florida Space Coast late Wednesday evening.
The rocket, with 22 Starlink satellites aboard, lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 11:36 p.m.
This is the 13th flight for the first-stage booster used in the mission, which has previously been used to launch CRS-22, Crew-3, Turksat 5B, Crew-4, CRS-25, Eutelsat HOTBIRD 13G, mPOWER-a, PSN SATRIA and four other Starlink missions.
