SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches Starlink satellite
Hi guys. My name is Jesse Anderson. I’m the ***Production and Engineering Manager here at SpaceX. SpaceX will be the host of his 59th launch in 2022. His 197th mission for all teams currently does not track any vehicle or spacecraft issues, whether in range or not. NASA’s SWAT mission and SES 03 B. From yesterday’s mission, he’s just 4.5 minutes from now waiting to retract the transporter’s erector. The first thing that happens is that the clamps just below the fairing’s arms begin to open, and once they’re fully open, the transport director or structure directly next to the vehicle begins to move away from the vehicle. You can see the clamp arm open on the screen. When fully open, the T opens and the Ellos clamp arms begin to fully retract. Open to reveal ears here called strong backs and unlock by moving away from the vehicle. rice field. This ends the propellant loading in the first stage. Rock’s loading ends at the T -2 minute mark where he is in the second stage. When it’s done, it becomes a Falcon Nine fully loaded with propellant. When this *** comes into contact with the warm, moist surrounding air, the surrounding air condenses. That’s why you see white clouds. They are almost like ***a cold glass of water forming condensation and the conclusion of a second stage liquid oxygen charge is coming. Page 2 appears to be locked. The Falcon Nine is currently loaded with 1 million pounds of fuel and liquid oxygen. Yes, we will start closing out. The booster you see on screen is flying for the 15th *** record break today. This previously supported CRS 21 Transporters 1 and 3 and Crew Demo 2 anal for previous Starlink missions 9. Reusability allows SpaceX to re-flight the rocket’s most expensive components, thereby reducing the cost of space access. Start up and Falcon Nine is starting up. The vehicle will land on our drone ship. Read today’s instructions. You can see it displayed on the screen. We are now awaiting final departure from the launch director. All systems are ready. Falcon Nine ready to take off at full power with Stirling payload T -30s, 15s t minus 10 987654321 engine, 4 37 go 1000 go start. Yeah, the Falcon is pitching downrange with some incredible views we’ve seen. You can see the Falcon Nine taking off from Pad 39 *** carrying the Starling payload into space. We’re throttling the engine down in preparation for the Max Q. Max Q is supersonic max Q is the maximum structural load experienced by the vehicle when climbing. Nice Q. I have a call that passed maX Q. Then four events occur. That is the MIKO stage separation SCS one, and the fairing deployment. Miko had all 9 of his engines you see now lit up in the first stage where the main engine died. They shut down and help slow down the stages. That’s when the first stage separates from the second stage. The first stage returns to Earth and lands on a drone ship. Just read today’s instructions and the 2nd stage will continue with SCS 1 or 2nd stage engine start 1. Here the trajectory so far looks nominal, just after lighting up its m-back his engine in the second stage and unfolding half of the fairing. We are approaching some of those events. just a few seconds. Raise your voice. Stage separation confirmed. As you can see, I confirmed the separation of the bearings. Miko Stage Separation SCS 1, the M back engine on the right side of the screen lit up and the fairing was deployed. Half of the fairing has returned to Earth and will be retrieved today by the recovery ship Doug. On the left screen you can see the first stage and the Bermuda signal acquisition deployed on the grid fins of the first stage. Both vehicles continue their nominal trajectory and great calls. Both vehicles look fine again. While the first stage is on its way back to Earth, the second stage still has the Starling payload attached and is telecast to its target drop-off orbit. After the first stage is the Entry Burn. That entry her burn is where three of the vehicle’s nine M1D engines reignite. This helps slow the stage as it re-enters the Earth’s atmosphere. After the entry burn, it will be the final burn, which will be the landing burn of the first stage. It’s just a *** single-engine, central E-9 engine that helps slow down the stage just before landing for landing. Our M1D engines have about 100 and 90,000 pounds of thrust at sea level, respectively. Well, the entry burn I mentioned is just under two minutes on the first stage. But if you look at the screen on the right, there are some nice views there. With the earth in the background and the sun in the background, it’s an incredible view. On the left screen is the *** view of the first stage. Again, grid fins are deployed to help steer the vehicle as it returns to the landing zone. Between the inner stage and the top of the first stage vehicle are four hypersonic grid fins that help guide the vehicle into the landing zone. You may also see bursts of nitrogen gas that help with attitude control during the first stages. We are about 30 seconds away from the entry burn on the first stage. Stage 1 FTS rescued Stage 1 entry-branded startups. As you can see, the engine re-ignited in the first stage and the H one N 1 was shut down. This causes the engine shutdown to end inlet combustion and include the first stage inlet combustion. Today’s mission mark. SpaceX is his 197th launch overall and, as previously mentioned, this is his 15th flight of this first stage booster, previously he has launched 14 missions and has a flight track record of I broke a new record flight for one booster***. *** First step as a reminder. Starlink is a satellite internet constellation designed and manufactured by SpaceX*** to provide high-speed, low-latency internet to remote and rural populations around the world. 1st stage Landing Burn And you can see that the engine has fired. Watch the Falcon Nine land. Please read the instructions. Stage 1 landing confirmed And we know Falcon Nine has landed for his 15th landing of this booster. This is his 58th landing this year and his 158th overall for an orbital-class rocket. I also heard the call of the 2nd engine cut-off machine, the Psycho, and confirmed the good trajectory. An impulse engine is carrying his 54 Starling satellites into low earth orbit in his second stage. Thank you for joining us today.
SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches Starlink satellite
SpaceX carried 54 Starlink satellites into low earth orbit this afternoon on a Falcon 9 rocket that launched from Kennedy Space Center. The Falcon 9 rocket launched at 4:32 p.m. from KSC’s Launch Complex 39A. With today’s launch, this Falcon 9 First Stage Rocket Booster is the record holder for a total of 15 launches. SpaceX successfully completed the first stage of its droneship in the Atlantic Ocean about nine minutes after takeoff. SpaceX launched a communications satellite for the SES 03b mPower network from KSC on Friday night, launching NASA’s SWOT mission to survey Earth’s waters early Friday morning from the Vandenberg Space Force Station in California.

SpaceX sent 54 Starlink satellites into low earth orbit this afternoon on a Falcon 9 rocket launched from Kennedy Space Center.
The Falcon 9 rocket launched at 4:32 p.m. from KSC’s Launch Complex 39A. With today’s launch, this Falcon 9 First Stage Rocket Booster is the record holder for a total of 15 launches. SpaceX has successfully completed the first phase of its drone just read the instructions The Atlantic Ocean about 9 minutes after launch.
The launch comes on the heels of two successful Falcon 9 launches over the past few days. SpaceX launched a communications satellite for the SES 03b mPower network from KSC on Friday night, launching NASA’s SWOT mission to survey Earth’s waters early Friday morning from the Vandenberg Space Force Station in California.
The launch can be seen above.
