After several attempts were called off due to bad weather, SpaceX finally successfully launched a Falcon 9v1.2FT Block 5 from Cape Canaveral, USA at 0018 GMT on 19 September 2022. The vehicle was carrying 54 other SpaceX Starlink satellites as the Group 4-34 mission to fill its constellation. The B1067 First stage on its sixth flight successfully landed on the drone barge “Just Read the Instructions” which was stationed downrange in the Atlantic Ocean. Having been placed into a low Earth orbit parking position, the satellites will eventually raise themselves using their own propulsion into their 540 km operational orbits.
