Starlink Mission

On Sunday, March 15, SpaceX stood down from its launch attempt of Starlink satellites. A standard auto-abort was triggered due to out of family data during engine power check. SpaceX will announce next launch date opportunity once confirmed on the Range.

Falcon 9s first stage supported the Iridium-7 NEXT mission in July 2018, the SAOCOM 1A mission in October 2018, the Nusantara Satu mission in February 2019, and the second launch of Starlink in November 2019. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9s first stage on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9s fairing previously supported the first launch of Starlink in May 2019. Approximately 45 minutes after liftoff, SpaceXs fairing recovery vessels, Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief, will attempt to recover the two fairing halves.
