SpaceX announces launch window of Thursday, June 22 from Vandenberg Space Force Base


VANDENBERG SPACE FORCE BASE, Calif. – SpaceX has designated a launch window of Thursday, Jun. 22 at 12:19 a.m. for a Falcon 9 launch carrying 47 Starlink satellites destined for low-Earth orbit.

A backup launch window has been selected on the same day at 11:53 p.m.

The launch will begin at Space Launch Complex 4 East at Vandenberg Space Force Base and, after stage separation with its cargo, the first stage booster will land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship waiting in the Pacific Ocean.

A live webcast of the mission will begin about five minutes before launch and can be found here.

This booster has previously supported the Space Development Agency's Tranche 0 mission as well as two Starlink missions.
