According to SpaceX, the launch will be broadcasted live on their social media profile about five minutes prior to liftoff.

If weather permits, this will be SpaceX's ninth flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched SDA-0A, SARah-2 and six Starlink missions.

SpaceX says, following stage separation, the first stage will land on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship, stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
