SpaceX, no stranger to history-making moments, made a couple more Tuesday morning in Florida.
The launch was a Starlink mission using a Falcon 9 rocket carrying another 58 broadband internet satellites. The mission also included three of Planet’s SkySats.
The first stage booster of this Falcon 9 previously flew on five other missions for SpaceX, including three other Starlink launches. Tuesday’s successful launch made history for SpaceX as the first time a first stage booster was reused for the sixth time.
Tuesday’s launch also marked an important milestone for SpaceX — its 100th mission.
