Technical issues postpone SpaceX Starlink launch
Posted: Sun, May 19, 2019, 11:11 AM ET (1511 GMT)
Falcon 9 carrying first Starlink satellites before launch (SpaceX) SpaceX postponed Thursday night's scheduled launch of 60 Starlink satellites because of a technical issue. The company postponed the launch more than two hours before the scheduled liftoff time because it wanted to "update satellite software and triple-check everything again." The next launch opportunity will be in about a week, the company announced. The previous Falcon 9 launch attempt Wednesday night was scrubbed by high winds. The 60 satellites on the rocket are the beginning of a constellation of thousands that will provide broadband internet access globally.
