Meanwhile, in Florida....

Fairing recovery ship Shelia Bordelon is heading back out to sea for yet another Starlink launch, just 13 hours after returning from the last.

Wonder why there's no official confirmation of the test results as of now, several hours later

Because it’s just a static fire, and SpaceX doesn’t tweet about them that often.

Not true, whenever there is a static fire, they tweet.

On Starlink missions with no SF, they tweet the day before/day of launch.

They didn’t tweet about the last Starlink static fire on March 8 either.

SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, May 4 for launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The instantaneous window is at 3:01 p.m. EDT, or 19:01 UTC, and a backup opportunity is available on Wednesday, May 5 at 2:39 p.m. EDT, or 18:39 UTC.

The Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission previously supported launch of Telstar 18 VANTAGE, Iridium-8, and six Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. One half of Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported two Starlink missions.
