On the two main coasts of the United States, SpaceX launched a number of low Earth orbit communications satellites for three different networks.
The first launch, Starlink Group 6-3, flew on Friday, May 19 at 2:19 AM EDT (06:19 UTC) from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The launch was just over five days after the last flight from the same pad. This broke the pad’s turnaround time between launches that was set between the Amazonas Nexus and Starlink 5-4 launches earlier this year. The previous turnaround record time was five days, three hours, and 38 minutes.
The second launch occurred on Saturday from Vandenberg, with Falcon 9 launching Iridium and OneWeb satellites.
