LOGIC WORD – SpaceX launched 56 Starlink satellites from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Friday.

The satellite was put into low Earth orbit by a Falcon 9 rocket that lifted off at 11:43 a.m. EDT.

The booster’s reusable first stage separated shortly after liftoff and returned to Earth where it landed on the “Shortfall of Gravity” drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean about 8 minutes and 27 seconds after launch.

The landing was the tenth so far for the first stage booster which launched 56 Starlink satellites on Friday.

Approximately nine minutes after liftoff, the spacecraft completed nominal orbital insertion.

The mission is SpaceX’s 20th launch of the year and 2019th overall.
