BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX has announced that tonight’s launch from Cape Canaveral has been pushed back to next week to update satellite software. Yesterday’s launch was scrubbed due to high upper level winds.

A specific date and time for the launch was not mentioned by SpaceX.

The rocket will launch a number of satellites for SpaceX’s Starlink broadband network.

SpaceX’s Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of connecting the globe, especially reaching those who are not yet connected, with reliable and affordable broadband internet services.

Following stage separation, the main stage booster engine will attempt landing on drone ship ‘Of Course, I Still Love You’ in the Atlantic Ocean.

Coverage of the launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
