Date: June 13
Time: 05:47;23.210 Eastern (09:47;23.210 UTC)
Booster: Booster 1059.3 (CRS-19 & CRS-20)
StarLink stack + rideshares; 3 Planet Labs SkySat Earth observation satellites.
The planet satellites really do look like dishwashers.
"Three of the satellites, each of which weighs 110kg and is about the size of a dishwasher, will go on a SpaceX Starlink launch in the coming weeks"
No static fire before this launch.
As far as we know: SpaceX broke the record for US launch-to-launch time from the same pad. Just 9 days, 7 hours and 55 minutes between Starlink L7 and L8 from SLC-40. Previous record was Gemini 7 to Gemini 6A which was 11 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes from LC-19 in 1965.
