A new corporate milestone for Elon Musk’s SpaceX with the launch of Starlink 4-16 on April 29th 2022 at 5:27 PM EDT or 21:27 UTC from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Florida carrying 53 internet satellites into orbit and only a 21 day turn around for first stage B-1062-6 from the Axiom-1 first private mission to the ISS.

This turn around record beats the previous record by six days for the SpaceX team.

Today’s launch is also the 43rd dedicated Starlink mission, the 154th total launches, 151st Falcon 9 launch,  116 total booster landing and the 93rd reflown rocket for this amazing company.
