Falcon 9 Turnaround

Chris Gebhardt, for NASASpaceflight, on SpaceX’s busy May, including Block 5’s debut, and this feat, as part of the Iridium NEXT-6/GRACE-FO mission:

The mission will use core B1043.2, a booster previously used to launch the much-discussed Zuma mission from Cape Canaveral, FL, in January.

At four-months 20 days between Zuma and Iridium NEXT-6/GRACE-FO, this will be the fastest Falcon 9 first stage turnaround between flights to date.
