At 5:21 AM EDT June 13th 2020 from launch complex 40 the dark morning sky turned to daylight when nine Merlin SpaceX engines ignited and successfully launched the Falcon 9 rocket with 58 company satellites into orbit including 3 ride share satellites.
SpaceX also successfully re landed on JRTI Just Read The Instructions out in the Atlantic ocean.
This booster had also flown and successfully completed the CRS-19 and CRS-20 missions to resupply the ISS International Space Station for NASA under SpaceX’s resupply contract with them.
It was a beautiful launch and another home run for SpaceX and their team. Congratulations to everyone involved who made this a success.
