    StarLink v1.0 is heavier than Starlink v0.9

    v0.9: 230kg
    v1.0: 260kg

    + Krypton for the thrusters

    Date: November 11
    Time: 0956 EST (1456 GMT)

    Backup date: November 12
    Time: 0934 EST (1434 GMT)

    Stage recovery: ASDS (OCISLY)
    Fairing recovery: T+45 min (Ms Tree, Ms Chief)

    Deployment altitude: 280km

    From the press kit

    Since the most recent launch of Starlink satellites in May, SpaceX has increased spectrum capacity for the end-user through upgrades in design that maximize the use of both Ka and Ku bands. Additionally, components of each satellite are 100% demisable and will quickly burn up in Earths atmosphere at the end of their life cyclea measure that exceeds all current safety standards.

    Recovery: ASDS Of Course I Still Love You

    Satellite version: v1.0
    Deployment orbit: 280km
    Operational orbit: 550km

    Note: testing at least one with an experimental coating to mitigate their brightness. Tests will measure net albedo and the thermal effects on the satellite.
