BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX has announced that the Falcon 9 rocket launch scheduled to liftoff on Tuesday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station has, once again, pushed back the launch till after Crew Demo-2 launches on May 27 due to conflict with Tropical Storm Arthur.
The mission for the SpaceX launch will carry Starlink 7, including over 60 satellites, that will be deployed in space as part of the SpaceX’s Starlink broadband network.
Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to recover the first stage booster engine on drone ship ‘Of Course, I Still Love You’ stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
