SpaceX to set new booster reuse record on Starlink mission

SpaceX to set new booster reuse record on Starlink mission

SpaceX is ready for the launch of the Starlink Group 4-12 mission, with a Falcon 9 rocket due to loft another 53 satellites into Low Earth Orbit

Saturday’s mission will mark the first time a Falcon 9 booster has flown for the 12th time and will bring the total number of Starlink satellites launched to over 2,300.

The launch marks a return to the northeasterly trajectory that SpaceX used for the initial Starlink Shell 4 launches.

Since Starlink Group 4-5 in January, SpaceX had instead been using a southeasterly trajectory with a dogleg around the Bahamas.

This was implemented to avoid unfavorable recovery weather in the North Atlantic Ocean during the winter months.

With spring coming, SpaceX is now returning to launching Starlink missions to the northeast.
