SpaceX successfully launched the Falcon 9 rocket with 22 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base on Monday.

After a series of rescheduling due to weather, liftoff took place at 7:30 p.m.

Following stage separation, the first stage will land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which will be stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
