    @SpaceX
    Weather is 50% favorable for tomorrow’s launch of 60 Starlink satellites at 9:49 a.m. EST, 14:49 UTC. Webcast will go live ~15 minutes before liftoff →

    Starlink V1.0 Launch #4

    60 StarLink v1.0 commsats

    Date: February 15, 2020
    Time: 1046 Eastern (1546 UTC)

    Booster: 1056.4 (CRS-17 & 18, Kacific-1)
    Booster recovery: ASDS Of Course I Still Love You
    Fairing recovery: Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief

    What was that about booster reuse never paying for itself?

    Also,

    Bloomberg reports StarLink will be spun off in an IPO. May be a while, likely after the v1.0 LEO constellation is deployed.

    Bloomberg...

    Already have some TSLA, but SpaceX is privately held with funds holding some stock sold by employees at scheduled sales. Google & Fidelity hold some, as well as the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

    Starlink may be spun off in an IPO after the LEO portion is completed.

    WRT StarLink 4

    @SpaceX
