SpaceX launched yet another batch of Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit on Friday afternoon, like clockwork.

On August 12 at 2:40 p.m. PT, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launched 46 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California.

Falcon 9 successfully landed on the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You in the Pacific Ocean, marking the 57th first stage landing on that particular drone ship.

This booster saw its 10th successful launch and landing, previously supporting Crew-1, Crew-2, SXM-8, CRS-23, IXPE, Transporter-4, Transporter-5, Globalstar FM15, and now two Starlink missions.

This was the 56th overall Starlink mission landing, and the 36th SpaceX launch of 2022, increasing the company’s annual launch record—and we’re only into mid-August.
