SpaceX Falcon 9 Flying for Record 12th Time, Launches 53 Starlink Satellites

SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon 9 rocket for a record-breaking 12th time on Saturday (March 19), and then returned to Earth for another successful landing. Falcon 9 was launched into low -Earth orbit from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 12:24 a.m. ET on March 19 (9:54 a.m. IST), carrying 53 Starlink SpaceX Internet satellites. This is the 12th flight of the first stage of the Falcon 9, breaking the previous record for the reusability of SpaceX rockets.

Through a tweet, SpaceX confirmed the placement of 53 Starlink satellites.

In another tweet, the company said that this was “the first time the first -stage Falcon 9 has been launched and landed 12 times”.

SpaceX confirmed the launch on its website as well. You can watch the launch video below:

A SpaceX representative said in its mission description that the Falcon 9 is a reusable two -stage rocket developed and built for the safe and reliable transportation of people and cargo to low Earth orbit and beyond. It is the world’s first reusable orbital rocket. Thanks to reusability, SpaceX can reduce the cost of access to outer space.

After its recent launch, the first stage of Falcon 9 returned to Earth after stage separation and settled on a drone called Just Read the Instructions in the Atlantic Ocean.
