SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch records on its 13th mission carrying Starlink satellites

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will fly creating a record for the 13th time launch on July 7.  A Falcon 9 topped with 53 of SpaceX’s Starlink internet satellites is set to lift off at 9:11 a.m. EDT on Thursday from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida. The company has confirmed a live coverage of the launch that will begin 10 minutes prior.

Reportedly the Falcon 9’s first stage will come back to Earth after 8.5 minutes of the liftoff. The Falcon 9 first stage coming back to Earth will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida Coast. The 53 Starlink satellites are expected to be deployed into the Earth’s low orbit by the rocket’s upper stage approximately seven minutes later.

The company stated that it would be the 13th mission for the Falcon 9 first stage which is a reuse record by the company. SpaceX first crewed flight, the Demo-2 mission was previously launched with the help of the booster to the International Space Station in 2020.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elo Musk have commented on the rapid rocket reuse breakthrough that is a necessary treatment for space exploration in the coming days. However, the rocket doesn’t remain fully reusable, especially since the upper first stage is destroyed.

Starlink is SpaceX’s constellation of broadband satellites. Reportedly the company has already launched more than 2,700 Starlink spacecraft to Earth’s low orbit. SpaceX stated that they have permission to launch almost 12,000 Starlink satellites and currently more than 30,000 satellites are being permitted to be launched in the future. The company has launched almost 27 orbital missions only in 2022 among which 15 were dedicated Starlink ships.
