It was worth waiting for the seas in the recovery area to calm down from yesterday’s postponement for a beautiful Presidents Day launch on 2-21-22 Monday at 9:44 AM EST for SpaceX and Elon Musk’s amazing company launching 46 Starlink satellites in orbit and landing first stage booster B-1058 for the 11th time down range in the Bahamas on (ASOG) A Shortfall of Gravitas drone ship!
The launch today was from SLC-40 Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Both fairing halves protecting the satellites have been flown three time now.
According to spacex.com/launches this now marks their 145th launch, 107 total booster landings and the 84th reflown rocket! Truly impressive!
