SpaceX launches dozens of Starlink satellites, lands rocket on ship at sea

SpaceX has pulled off yet another rocket launch and landing.

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket carrying 53 Starlink spacecraft lifted off from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California on Friday (May 13) at 6:07 pm EDT (2207 GMT; 3:07 pm local California time). Less than nine minutes later, the Falcon 9’s first stage came back to Earth for a pinpoint landing on the SpaceX droneship “Of Course I Still Love You,” which was stationed in the Pacific Ocean off Baja California.
