The external payloads for this mission include Orbital Carbon Observatory 3 and Space Test Program-Houston 6. The Falcon 9 launches from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral AFS. The booster was expected to land at LZ-1, however, due to the ongoing investigation and clean-up following the Crew Dragon testing incident, it is likely to land on OCISLY instead.",
