In September 2020, the United States Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) announced an agreement with SpaceX to launch previously flown first stage boosters on future National Security Space Launch (NSSL) missions.

As we reported earlier, on September 3, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 vehicle with a batch of 60 mini-satellites to replenish the orbital group of the global Starlink Internet coverage network.

Falcon 9 was lift off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Starlink satellites deployed approximately 14 minutes after liftoff.
