Twice as nice! SpaceX set for nighttime doubleheader launch from Florida

SpaceX on Monday will look for a spectacular double-dip of rocket launches.

With a Falcon Heavy rocket scheduled to send a secret mission into space at 8:14 p.m. Monday from Kennedy Space Center, the company has now confirmed that it will also attempt to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station just hours later.

SpaceX is hoping the Falcon 9 will launch 23 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit during a window from 11:05 p.m. Monday to 3 a.m. Tuesday.

SpaceX said this will mark the third flight for the first-stage booster supporting the mission, which previously launched the Crew-7 and CRS-29 missions.

Following stage separation, the booster will attempt to land on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.
