SpaceX suspends launch of Starlink satellites due to ‘unfavorable weather’
The weather conditions forced SpaceX to suspend the launch of more Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit on Sunday night.
The launch was reportedly rejected at the last minute.
At least two launches of 60 new Starlink satellites at a time were planned to launch this week and it remains unclear if the plan for this week is going to be fulfilled as the weather forecast can’t predict the condition until the weekend, the agency said.
However, back on Friday SpaceX received approval from the 45th Space Wing for a Falcon 9 lift off from Cape Canaveral Force base.
Shortly before 11:21 p.m. SpaceX rescheduled the launch for Monday at 10:59 p.m. EST due to the unfavorable weather condition on Sunday.
