On Monday, SpaceX delayed the launch of Starlink satellite aboard a Falcon 9 rocket due to weather.

No new information on the next launch date has been given yet.


This mission will help SpaceX deliver broadband internet service from low-Earth orbit. The first batch of Starlink satellites of this company was sent into orbit on May 23rd, 2019. This Monday’s mission was one of the three launches of the 13th Starlink launch of the company.

The company hopes to complete another launch on Tuesday. Liftoff time is scheduled for 10:10 p.m. The company expects to send the U.S. Air Force’s fourth third-generation navigation satellite for the Global Positioning System into orbit. This mission has been delayed many times since last year.

United Launch Alliance, another space company, will launch its Delta IV NROL-44 rocket on Tuesday as well. The launch will happen at 12:02 a.m. This mission was initially scheduled for Sunday and then pushed to Monday, and now the company has moved it to Tuesday to take more time to ensure that all issues are resolved with the swing arm retraction system.
