SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches Starlink satellites



Hello everyone. My name is Jesse Anderson. I’m *** production and engineering manager here at SpaceX and I’ll be your host for SpaceX’s 59th launch of 2022 our 197th mission over all the teams are currently tracking no issues with the vehicles or spacecraft whether in range are both green for launch and we are proceeding with the T zero of 4 32 PM Eastern Time if you’ve been following along, you know that this is our third launch in less than 34 hours following the launches of Nasa’s swat mission and the S. E. S. 03 B. Mpower mission yesterday and with liftoff just 4.5 minutes from now we are standing by for transporter erector retraction and what you’ll see happening first will be the clamp arms just below the fairing begin to open up and once those are fully open then the transport director or that structure right next to the vehicle will start to retract away from the vehicle and there you can see on your screen those clamp arms are now opening up and once they are fully open the T and begin to retract Ellos clamp arms are fully open and now you can see the ear what you may may here called the strong back retract away from the vehicle to unlock. We just heard *** call out stage one locks load complete, that concludes propellant loading on the first stage Locks Loading will conclude on the second stage at the T -2 minute mark. Once that does wrap up, that will be Falcon nine fully loaded with propellant. You may see some venting of liquid oxygen. Once this comes in contact with *** warm, humid ambient air, it condenses the air around it. So that’s why you see those white clouds. They’re almost like *** cold glass of water forming condensation are coming up on liquid oxygen loading conclusion on the second stage Page two locks look complete And there’s that call out just to confirm that the second stage liquid oxygen loading is now complete. Falcon nine is now fully loaded with £1 million pounds of fuel and liquid oxygen. Yes, launch closeouts. Now the booster that you see on your screen is flying for *** record breaking 15th time today. It previously supported crew demo two anuses to CRS 21 Transporter one and three and nine previous Starlink missions. Reusability allows SpaceX to re fly the most expensive parts of the rocket which in turn drives down the cost of space access. Start up And Falcon nine is now in startup. The vehicle will be scheduled to land on our drone ship. Just read the instructions today and there you can see that on your screen and we are now just waiting for the final go for from the launch director And there it is with all systems ready to go. Falcon nine is ready to lift off with our starling payload T -30 seconds, 15 seconds t minus 10 987654321 engines full power and lift off across 4 37 go 1000 go starting. Yeah, Falcon is pitching downrange With the incredible views that…
