BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX has scrubbed tonight’s launch from Cape Canaveral due to high upper level winds.

Next launch opportunity is set for tomorrow. Launch window is still to be determined.

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.
