A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 48 Starlink satellites to low Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station 8:45 a.m. on 9 March 2022. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
The first stage booster supporting this mission previously launched Arabsat-6A, STP-2, and COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation FM2.
