SpaceX will launch 49 Starlink satellites from Kennedy Space Center today (January 18th).

The launch is scheduled for 7.04 Florida time (00.04 UTC), subject to the usual weather considerations.

The booster supporting this mission previously launched GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, and six other Starlink missions.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the ‘A Shortfall of Gravitas’ droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Each of Falcon 9’s fairing halves previously supported one Starlink mission.
