— SpaceX will launch one of its rockets for a record 10th time Sunday (May 9), with a very sooty Falcon 9 rocket lofting a new fleet of Starlink satellites into space before dawn, and you can watch it live online. .

The Hawthorne, California-based company will launch 60 Starlink satellites on one of its fleet leaders, a flight-proven Falcon 9 rocket dubbed B1051!

You can watch the launch live here and on the Space.com homepage, courtesy of SpaceX, beginning about 15 minutes before liftoff.

Sunday's flight, called Starlink 26, is the 14th mission so far for SpaceX in 2021 — all of which have flown on a reused booster.

It's also the second Starlink mission to launch in a week, as SpaceX's last mission blasted off on Tuesday (May 4). .

When SpaceX debuted the souped-up version of its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket in 2018, the company said that each launcher would be capable of flying at least 10 times with minimal refurbishment in between launches, and 100 times total.

SpaceX has learned a lot about the refurbishment process, and the company's CEO and founder, Elon Musk, says that SpaceX will continue to push Falcon 9 to the limit as it works to expand its Starlink mega constellation. .

To date, the company has launched more than 1,500 of the flat-paneled satellites into space.

Sunday's launch marks the 118th flight overall for SpaceX's 229-foot-tall (70 meters) Falcon 9 booster.

The Falcon 9 stage then switched to Starlink duty, ferrying a trio of different Starlink payloads followed by a broadband satellite for Sirius-XM.

Now back on Starlink duty, B1051 is about to launch its 4th Starlink mission in a row.

The veteran is one of the oldest boosters in SpaceX's fleet and is the first to attempt a 10th launch and landing!
