Posted: Sun, May 8, 2022, 9:18 AM ET (1318 GMT)
SpaceX capped off its most active month of launches to date with a Starlink launch April 29. A Falcon 9 lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 5:27 pm EDT (2127 GMT) and placed its payload of 53 Starlink satellites into orbit an hour later. The launch was the sixth SpaceX conducted in April, the most in any calendar month by the company. A SpaceX executive recently promoted the benefits of a high flight rate, something enabled by deployment of Starlink satellites and reuse of Falcon 9 boosters. Also on Friday, the FAA announced another one-month delay in completing an environmental review of SpaceX Starship orbital launches from Boca Chica, Texas, citing "multiple" changes SpaceX made to its application and ongoing coordination with other agencies.
