TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) —SpaceX kicked off 2023 with its first launch of the year, sending its Falcon 9 rocket into space for Transporter-6, the company’s sixth dedicated rideshare mission.

The rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 at 9:56 a.m. ET.

The rocket is carrying 114 payloads, for a number of companies. This includes CubeSats, microsats, picosats, and orbital transfer vehicles carrying spacecraft that will be deployed at a later time.

The rocket’s first stage booster previously launched GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, Intelsat G-33/G-34 and 10 Starlink missions. It is expected to returned to Earth following stage separation and land on Canaveral’s Launch Zone 1.
