BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — After being postponed four times due to weather and equipment issues, SpaceX was set to launch 60 more Starlink satellites Saturday morning before liftoff was cancelled again before launch.

Liftoff for the Falcon 9 launch was scheduled for 8:28 a.m. Saturday. The launch was aborted and SpaceX is targeting Monday morning for a new launch window.

Its previously scheduled launch on Thursday was scrubbed seconds before liftoff due to what SpaceX called a “out of family ground system sensor reading.”

We are also still waiting on a new launch date for the Delta IV Heavy rocket carrying the NROL-44 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was scrubbed Wednesday night.

We will continue to monitor any changes and provide you with the latest on Channel 9 Eyewitness News, wftv.com and on our news app.
