This is SpaceX’s fifth attempt to get the rocket off the ground after it was scrubbed four other times over the past three weeks.

The launch was scheduled to happen at 7:51 a.m. Monday but it’s now rescheduled to Tuesday.

The satellites will join a constellation of satellites aimed at improving broadband internet across the globe.

On Friday night, the company aborted a different rocket launch with just seconds to go on the countdown. When that rocket launches, it will be carrying an advanced GPS satellite for the U.S. Space Force.

On Sunday, SpaceX founder and CEO, Elon Musk, tweeted he will be visiting Cape Canaveral next week to inspect rocket hardware.
