SpaceX delays launch of Starlink, BlackSky satellites again due to rocket checks

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX postponed the most current launch of a new Starlink satellite fleet yet again Saturday (July 11) citing the need for a lot more checks of the mission’s Falcon 9 rocket. 

The California-dependent rocket builder prepared to start 57 Starlink satellites andtwo BlackSky World wide Earth-observing satellites from Florida at 10:54 a.m. EDT (1454 GMT) Saturday as component of a rideshare mission. But just in excess of an hour prior to liftoff, SpaceX declared by using Twitter that it was standing down. A new start date and time even now wants to be confirmed with the Eastern Vary, the entity that oversees all launches along the East Coastline.
