SpaceX launches Starlink batch after multiple scrubs, nails landing at sea

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 54 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida on Sept. 18, 2022. The rocket’s first stage landed on the “Just Read the Instructions” drone ship several minutes later.

Weather scrubbed the launch of the rocket for several nights prior.
