Starlink 13 will mark the 14th Starlink mission, boosting the total number of Starlink satellites launched to 833. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, 633 km downrange.

Starlink is SpaceX’s internet communication satellite constellation. The Low-Earth orbit constellation will deliver fast, low-latency internet service to locations where ground-based internet is unreliable, unavailable, or expensive. The Falcon 9 Block 5 is SpaceX’s partially reusable two-stage medium-lift launch vehicle. Block 5 is the final iteration of the Falcon 9. The Falcon 9 contains 3 main components: a reusable first stage, an expendable second stage, and a reusable fairing.

The booster supporting this mission B1051 previously flew five times. It’s maiden flight was on the SpaceX’s Demonstration Mission-1, on March 2, 2019. It’s second mission was on the most expensive commercial payload launched, the RADARSAT, and finally, the booster has been used on the Starlink missions 3, 6 and 8.

This will be the 18th launch for SpaceX in 2020.
This will mark the 95th flight of a Falcon 9 rocket, 44th re-flight of a booster and 62nd booster landing.
