SpaceX launched 60 Starlink satellites from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on Tuesday, raising the number of spacecraft launched for the broadband Internet constellation to 775.

The successful flight followed three scrubs, two for bad weather and the other due to a ground sensor issue.

Falcon 9’s first stage successfully landed on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship. The booster previously supported launch of Crew Dragon’s first flight to the International Space Station with NASA astronauts onboard and the ANASIS-II mission. It was the 43rd flight with a reused first stage.

Ms. Tree recovering boat captured a fairing half that was used in two previous launches.
