The 17th operational batch of Starlink satellites (18th overall) will lift off from LC-39A at the Kennedy Space Center, on a Falcon 9 rocket. In the weeks following deployment the Starlink satellites will use onboard ion thrusters to reach their operational altitude of 550 km. Falcon 9’s first stage will attempt to land on a droneship approximately 633 km downrange.

This will be the 8th flight for the Falcon 9 booster B1049, which last flew in November 2020 for the Starlink-15 mission. This will be the 5th Starlink launch for B1049, it also flew the Iridium 8 mission and the Telstar 18V mission.

Note: this launch is Starlink-17 despite the fact that Starlink-18 and -19 already launched, both in February. Delays for this mission pushed it past those two, but the original numbering is preserved.
