Falcon 9's stoic performance is somewhat less guaranteed.
For Starlink to succeed, the only thing to do is to be critical, if at least within reason. A failure to act as a major regulatory consequence of the failure of the sector. However, nothing will kill Starlink faster than unreliable proposition in SpaceX’s current condition.
So long as Falcon 9 Block 5 remains as far as it may be. If all goes well with SpaceX, you can be ready to launch around May 22-24.
