The Falcon 9 carried 60 Starlink satellites from Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. They're part of a constellation of thousands of mini-satellites that will eventually provide internet access around the world.
After the stage separation, the first stage booster of the Falcon 9 landed on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which is stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, making it the 85th successful landing for a booster.
The booster may then be reused in a future mission.
This is also the fifth time the fairing half for this rocket has been used for a launch.
