Watch SpaceX launch a Falcon 9 rocket packed with Starlink satellites this Star Wars Day

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX is getting in on the Star Wars Day action as it’s planning to launch its own Falcon into space this May the Fourth. A veteran Falcon 9 rocket will ferry a full stack of Starlink satellites into space on Tuesday afternoon (May 4) and you can watch it live online. 

The Hawthorne, California-based company will launch one of its fleet leaders, a very sooty Falcon 9 rocket dubbed B1049. The frequent flier won’t make the Kessel Run, but it will blast off from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center here in Florida at 3:01 p.m. EDT (1901 GMT).
