This marked the shortest time so far between two SpaceX launches from the same pad at 5d 9h 28m between Eutelsat Hotbird 13F and Starlink 4-36. Previous record set a few weeks ago was ~14 hours longer.

Starlink 4-36: ASOG and B1062 are likely to arrive overnight Saturday, into Sunday morning.

Bob with fairing halves will arrive Saturday morning.

Here is a comparison of the webcast telemetry from the two most recent 54 satellite Starlink launches from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, 4-34 and 4-36.

The first stage profiles are essentially the same, but there is a difference in the second stage terminal guidance that I have not noticed previously.

4-34 throttled back about 3% at the T+490 second mark, but 4-36 throttled back perhaps 2% at three points: T+ 450, 475 and 508 seconds.

4-36 burnt for a couple of seconds longer, so the area under the two curves is the same, giving the same impulse. Gravity losses would have been fast approaching zero at this stage, so it would be interesting to know what this more complex profile achieves. Insertion accuracy?

Arrival! Bob returns from Starlink 4-36 with just one fairing half. A rare loss 😢... unless they planned to expend one half.
