BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX postponed Monday’s Falcon 9 rocket launch from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The launch is targeted for tomorrow 9:16 p.m. ET.

SpaceX cited weather concerns for tonight’s launch and made the decision to scrub tonight’s launch attempt and try again on Tuesday.

The Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission previously flew on six other missions: the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018, the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019, and four Starlink missions in May 2019, January 2020, June 2020, and August 2020.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. One half of Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported a mission, and the other half previously two.
