Also, a Falcon 9 carrying a Cargo Dragon launched the CRS-18 resupply mission to the ISS from SLC-40 at the Cape earlier. The booster, which previously launched CRS-17 and will next launch CRS-19, landed back at LZ-1.

This booster landing was the 44th successful recovery of a Falcon, less than four years after the first successful landing in December 2015.

Also, this was the first time a Cargo Dragon capsule has flown for the third time. It was sporting two ISS insignias representing the previous two missions, in addition to an Apollo 50th logo.

Two prototype heat shield tiles for Starship are attached on the side for real-life testing when Dragon returns in four weeks.
