If you think this is becoming routine, think again. This will be the first attempt to reuse a rocket booster eight times.
SpaceX will launch a batch of 60 satellites from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday, in what will be the first Starlink launch for the year andfor in 2021. If you want to watch live, we have you covered right here.
The launch was originally targeted for Monday, but unfavourable weather conditions have seen the flight pushed back 48 hours. SpaceX is now targeting a launch time of 5:02 a.m. PT (8:02 a.m. ET) on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
It will be the 16th launch for Starlink, the satellite megaconstellation designed to beam broadband across the world, enveloping the sky with thousands of small satellites. The launch also aims to set a rocket recycling record. The Falcon 9 booster used in this mission will be B1051, which has previously flown a record seven times. It will aim to go one better and then land on the drone ship Just Read The Instructions stationed in the Atlantic Ocean about 10 minutes after lift-off.
