SpaceX: Tenth Starlink launch ready to go

SpaceX will launch another batch of Starlink satellites for their high-speed LEO internet constellation. They’re targeting Saturday July 11 2020, at 10:54 EDT. Next to the main payload of 57 Starlink satellites, SpaceX will also carry two BlackSky satellites with a total mass of 110kg to LEO. BlackSky is a Seattle-based startup. Through a satellite constellation which captures about 95% of earth’s surface they’re going to provide near real-time footage for compnies, governments and all kinds of other organizations to help them making the right decisions.

The Falcon 9 booster B1051 used for the mission was previously used for 4 missions, one of them was SpaceX Demo-1 in March 2019. B1051 will join B1048 and B1049 as the third booster finishing 5 flights and the second active booster after B1048 was destroyed during Starlink V1 L5.

As always, Spacex is going to provide live-coverage of the launch on their Youtube channel.
