UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — SpaceX said a rocket that had already been delayed due to bad weather on Wednesday was postponed again after 24 hours on Thursday but for about a week this time to update satellite software and check “everything” accurately.
The company, founded by Elon Mask, said the mission was to set up an initial set of 60 low-Earth orbit satellites to operate the new world-class Internet service Starlink, owned by Musk, a service that aims to save money for other space exploration ambitions of the billionaire and entrepreneur Musk.
The Falcon 9 and its payload of satellites were originally scheduled to start from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on Wednesday night, but Spacex postponed it due to strong winds above the launch site.
“We always want to do everything we can on the ground to maximize the chances of our mission. The next launch opportunity in about a week.”
The company gave no further details to reporters at Cape Canaveral.
