SpaceX Starlink Group 4-16 Launch

SpaceX plans to launch 53 Starlink satellites into Shell 4, with an eventual 540 km circular service orbit at 53.22° inclination, on 2022-04-29 at 21:27 UTC. This will be the 6th flight of Falcon 9 booster B1060, which is bring launched only 21.26 days after its previous launch of the Axiom-1 mission, breaking the previous Falcon 9 booster turn-around time record of 27.17 days. SpaceX says that this booster “went through significantly less inspection than usual” as part of an effort to reduce turn-around time and increase launch cadence.
