A special SpaceX Launch this morning

A couple of milestones with the launch from Vandenberg this morning in about 3 minutes

1. First time a booster is flown for the third time (and attempt to recover for a 4th use)

2. This booster will have flown from all three of SpaceX's launch sites, Pad 39A, SLC-4C, & SLC40

3. 64 Satellites in one launch to SSO from 34 different sources, from all the way from tech development to a middle school.

4. They will attempt to recover fairings with their catcher, Mr Steven
