SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. – SpaceX on Friday launched another batch of Starlink satellites into orbit, this time from California.

The Falcon 9 rocket carrying 51 Starlink satellites launched from Space Launch Complex 4 East at California’s Vandenberg Space Force Base.

The satellites will be sent into low-Earth orbit and the Falcon 9′s first-stage rocket booster landed on the Of Course I Still Love You drone ship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

The first-stage booster supporting the mission has also launched Crew-1, Crew-2, SXM-8, CRS-23, IXPE, Transporter-4, Transporter-5, Globalstar FM15, ISI EROS C-3 and two Starlink missions, according to SpaceX.

The launch follows the Crew-6 mission, which successfully took off early Thursday from Kennedy Space Center in Brevard County.

The Florida launch sent NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren Hoburg, United Arab Emirates astronaut Sultan Alneyadi and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev toward the International Space Station in a Dragon spacecraft.
