Space Launch Complex 40
Cape Canaveral Space Force Station

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 22 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 11:38 p.m. on 19 September 2023. Following stage separation, the first stage landed on the A Short Fall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This is the 17th flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, marking the first Falcon 9 booster to reach this milestone. It previously launched GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, Intelsat G-33/G-34, Transporter-6, and 11 Starlink missions.

After a record 17 flights, the first stage booster after its return to Port Canaveral can be seen at left below the orange and white crane. The rocket is partially obscured by a vessel unloading sand.
