From the press kit:

Quote
Since the most recent launch of Starlink satellites in May, SpaceX has increased spectrum capacity for the end-user through upgrades in design that maximize the use of both Ka and Ku bands. Additionally, components of each satellite are 100% demisable and will quickly burn up in Earth’s atmosphere at the end of their life cycle—a measure that exceeds all current safety standards.

The whole gang's here!

The fairing catchers have arrived at the booster landing zone, where OCISLY is waiting. They will have to travel a little further downrange to where the fairing will land later on.

60 Starlink satellites are poised to head to orbit tomorrow at 9:56 a.m. EST.

The first stage of this rocket has flown three missions, making this the first instance a Falcon 9 will launch for the fourth time. This mission also marks the first re-flight of a recovered fairing.

Anyone else notice these 3 lines on the bottom of the Starlink-1 fairing? This fairing was previously used on Arabsat-6A so here’s a few photos showing it absent on there, pre-launch.

Sort of looks like a 🌊 to me (since they were plucked out of the water?🤣) @elonmusk

Update: There may a problem with Fairing Recovery.

Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief have turned off their trackers, but not before Ms. Tree was logged heading away from the recovery zone towards the closest land. (1/3)

As mentioned Saturday, both ships were forced to stop in rough seas before resuming their journey. The sea state is currently very calm, the seas were only rough on Saturday.  (2/3)

I am purely speculating that they may have identified a problem with the catching structure that cannot be resolved as a result of the seas on Saturday. (3/3)

BREAKING: Earlier fears have been confirmed. Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief have been seen arriving at Morehead City Port.

There will be no fairing recovery for today's Starlink L1 mission. Thanks to @Space__Bird for the photo.
