Starlink V1.0 Launch #4

60 StarLink v1.0 commsats

Date: February 15, 2020
Time: 1046 Eastern (1546 UTC)

Booster: 1056.4 (CRS-17 & 18, Kacific-1)
Booster recovery: ASDS Of Course I Still Love You
Fairing recovery: Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief

What was that about booster reuse never paying for itself?

 

Also,

 

Bloomberg reports StarLink will be spun off in an IPO. May be a while, likely after the v1.0 LEO constellation is deployed.

Did they get any feedback on the new "darkening" they deployed during the last batch?

 

Will they be deploying more/different solutions this time?

 

It would be good to have any other news after the launch.

Don't expect to hear much about DarkSat until it arrives at its 550km operational altitude, which may be several more weeks.  Measurements between 340km and 550km are only applicable to the transition periods up/down - a tiny part of their 5-year mission.
