BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — After being postponed three times due to weather, SpaceX was set to launch 60 more Starlink satellites Thursday morning before liftoff was cancelled again seconds before launch.
Liftoff for the Falcon 9 launch was scheduled for 9:17 a.m. Thursday. The launch was aborted with 18 seconds left on the countdown clock due to what SpaceX called a “out of family ground system sensor reading.”
Its previously scheduled launch on Monday was also scrubbed seconds before liftoff but due to weather.
A new launch date for the Starlink satellite mission has not been announced. 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.
The next SpaceX launch scheduled from the Space Coast is set for Friday night. The company said it is targeting launch of GPS III-4 on Friday with the 15-minute launch window opening at 9:43 p.m.
