The company plans to launch and land a rocket on Saturday, less than 24 hours after doing so.
A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying 53 Starlink internet satellites is scheduled to lift off on Saturday. The Cape Canaveral Space Force Station is in Florida. The first stage of the rocket will land on the sea about nine minutes after liftoff, if everything goes according to plan.

The second Starlink mission will be launched on Saturday. A Falcon 9 rocketed 53 of the broadband spacecraft from California to Baja California and then aced its landing on a droneship.
Yesterday was the fifth launch and landing of the first stage of the Falcon 9. The rocket flying today is brand-new, with no previous space missions under its belt.
The company has already launched 19 flights in the last two years, 12 of them dedicated to Starlink.
More than 2,500 Starlink satellites have been launched to date, but many more will be lofted. The next-generation version of the broadband megaconstellation could eventually hold up to 30,000 satellites, according to paperwork that has been filed.
