After some weather and technical delays, a Falcon 9 launched at 0213 GMT on 25 November 2020 from the Cape Canaveral launch site (SLC-40 pad). All 60 STARLINK communications spacecraft deployed approximately 15 minutes after launch. The reusable first stage B1049 successfully landed on drone barge Of Course I Still Love You located down range in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 9 minutes after launch. This marks the first time a Falcon 9 first stage has landed seven times. Excluding derivative Falcon Heavy flights, the launch was the 100th attempted launch by a Falcon 9.
