This mission's first-stage rocket for the Falcon 9 previously launched one Starlink mission.

The first stage landed on the drone ship "A Shortfall of Gravitas," which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, following stage separation.

 Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida will serve as the launch site. Six hours after launch

 the Atlas V will send both spacecraft directly into geosynchronous orbit, which is located about 22,000 miles (35,500 km) above the equator
