In celebration of the recent historical launch of Falcon 9 and the successful Starlink mission, we are launching our Galaxy Special Edition just in time for Father's Day.
The Historical Launch of the Falcon 9 Rocket
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft take off from the Kennedy Space Center on the first orbital spaceflight from U.S. soil since 2011, on Saturday May 30, 2020. Two veteran NASA astronauts rocketed away from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to begin a test flight of a new commercial spaceship designed, built and owned by SpaceX.
The successful launch was a milestone for NASA, with the restoration of crew access to low Earth orbit from U.S. soil. The nine-year gap since the last shuttle mission in July 8, 2011 was the longest span of time since the first U.S. human spaceflight in 1961 that NASA did not have a way to send crews into space on domestic rockets.
The Starlink Mission
On the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Falcon 9 rocket’s debut flight, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 from Cape Canaveral with a reused first stage Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 then landed the previously-flown booster for a record fifth time after sending 60 more Starlink Internet satellites into space.
The rocket’s upper stage fired into orbit with the 60 Starlink satellites, and then released all of the flat-panel spacecraft at one time around 15 minutes after liftoff in a preliminary elliptical orbit. The satellites were expected to deploy their solar arrays and spread out before beginning orbit-raising maneuvers to enter SpaceX’s Starlink constellation around 341 miles (550 kilometers) above Earth.
