The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch a Starlink batch from pad 40 on November 3 around 7 p.m. EDT or later. A Falcon 9 will launch the CRS-29 resupply mission to the ISS from pad 39A on November 7 at 9:16 p.m. EST. The first stage will land back at the Cape about eight minutes after launch. A Falcon 9 will launch the mPOWER-C internet satellites for SES from pad 40 on November 12 at 4:08 p.m. EST. Upcoming launches include more Starlink batches from pad 40.



The SLC-40 Starlink mission following 6-27 and O3b mPower-c is likely to launch in mid November.  Assuming that SpaceX continues to launch its Florida Starlink Group 6's in ascending numerical order, this launch will be 6-28.  It is currently listed with launch NET November, from either Kennedy LC-39A or Canaveral SLC-40.

However, LC-39A will not be available due to launch preparations for the Falcon Heavy USSF-52 launch.

https://nextspaceflight.com/launches/details/7246



Starlink 6-25 successfully launched October 30 UTC, with a first stage landing aboard JRTI

Starlink 6-26 is scheduled to launch November 3 UTC, with a first stage landing aboard ASOG.

Starlink 6-27 will likely launch November 8 UTC, with a first stage landing aboard JRTI.

O3b mPower-c is currently scheduled to launch November 12, with a first stage landing aboard ASOG.

Starlink 6-28 could launch circa November 16, with a first stage landing aboard JRTI.  (4 day SLC-40 turnaround, 8 day ASDS turnaround)

(Foul weather and sea states, including hurricanes, will break the perfect pattern.🌀 Murphy's Law.)

Which first stage will be used for this launch (semi-rhetorical question)?

The May 16 press briefing revealed Falcon 9 first stages are now cleared for use up to twenty times for Starlink launches.

1064.5 and 1065.5 are reserved as the Falcon Heavy side boosters for USSF-52.

1072.1 is reserved for Cygnus NG-20.

1076.9 and 1073.12 may undergo modifications to become Falcon Heavy side boosters for a future launch, but both are available for "single-stick" launches currently.

Available first stages, with UTC date of most recent recovery:
1078.6    Sep 16
1060.18  Sep 24
1069.11  Sep 30
1067.15  Oct 13
1062.17  Oct 18
1080.5    Oct 22

Edit November 17: It's B1069.11, skipping over B1078.6 and B1060.18.

Looks like Bob is staying out for the double feature (O3b + Starlink)
