SpaceX said the Falcon 9 booster for this next Starlink mission had previously supported seven missions.
Tuesday morning’s launch will take place from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39, on Merritt Island in Florida. Falcon 9 will land on SpaceX’s autonomous drone ship, named “Just Read the Instructions” in the Atlantic Ocean.
Starlink internet is currently in beta, available for a limited number of testers in the U.S., Canada and recently the UK.
