Discussion thread for Starlink v1.0 Launch 27

NSF Threads for Starlink v1.0 L27: Discussion
NSF Articles for Starlink v1.0 L27: https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021/05/historic-10th-falcon9-reflight/

Launched successfully on May 9, 2021 at 2:42am EDT (0642 UTC) on Falcon 9 (booster 1051.10) from CCSFS SLC-40. ASDS landing achieved on Just Read The Instructions, towed by tugboat Finn Falgout. Recovery support ship was GO Quest. Fairing recovery of both halves from the water was accomplished by MV Shelia Bordelon.

Quote
This will be the tenth flight of the Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission, which previously launched Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission to the International Space Station, the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, SXM-7, and six Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. Both of Falcon 9’s fairing halves previously flew on the GPS III Space Vehicle 04 mission.

Payload: A batch of 60 Starlink satellites. Expected deployment orbit of approximately 284 x 259 km.

From a previous mission's Press Kit:
Quote
Each Starlink satellite weights approximately 260 kg and features a compact, flat-panel design that minimizes volume, allowing for a dense launch stack to take full advantage of Falcon 9’s launch capabilities. With four powerful phased array and two parabolic antennas on each satellite ... At end of their life cycle, the satellites will utilize their on-board propulsion system to deorbit over the course of a few months. In the unlikely event their propulsion system becomes inoperable, the satellites will burn up in Earth’s atmosphere within 1-5 years, significantly less than the hundreds or thousands of years required at higher altitudes. Further, Starlink components are designed for full demisability.

Starlink is targeting service to near global coverage of the populated world by 2021. Additional information on the system can be found at starlink.com.

It seems that this mission 60 starlink satellites are launched, while the Starlink L26 could launch less since a shared mission is expected and this could be the indicator of why L27 will fly before L26

I don't know if that is the case, but I had the same thought.  Capella is still awaiting their launch license.

That's right, they would be the two Capella 5, 6 capella space satellites and the PredaSAR 1 satellite of PredaSAR.

I don't know if SpaceX launches 60 satellites or less because the secondary payloads are satellites and not cubesats

Capella's flight is going to a higher altitude, so there would need to be fewer Starlinks.

Why do you think PredaSAR is launching with Capella?  I haven't seen anything about their launch plans (other than their first launch will be with SpaceX sometime).

If I am honest, it is the information that is in wikipedia in the section of orbital flights of 2021, it is the third satellite that leaves, however they reckon that PredaSAR that this is not confirmed but that it would be launched in a shared mission

The launch date would be 11 days since the last launch at SLC-40, and not a particularly fast turnaround.

However, it is 6 days from the day announced (May 3). That’s close to the theoretical minimum turnaround at the HIF.

So it’s possible this was a fastball decision to launch L27 ahead of L26.

With respect to Starlink L26, the PredaSAR load no longer appears where I had consulted it, so only the two capella space satellites would be launched. send a communication to PredaSAR to know more about your payload and I am still waiting for the answer. It would be good to know more about the current state of this satellite.   ;)
