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"

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.
