BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX is standing down from today’s launch of Starlink 11 due to inclement weather at Kennedy Space Center during pre-flight operations. Next launch opportunity is Tuesday, September 1 at 9:29 a.m. EDT.
The mission payload will carry 60 satellites for SpaceX’s Starlink broadband network, Starlink 11.
The goal of Starlink is to create a network that will help provide internet services to those who are not yet connected, and to provide reliable and affordable internet across the globe.
Following first-stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to recover the main booster engine on drone ship ‘Of Course, I Still Love You’ stationed in the Atlantic ocean.
