It was stated that the launch of 60 satellites planned to be sent to space within the scope of the Starlink project was delayed due to adverse weather conditions.
SpaceX, of which Elon Musk is the CEO, was prepared today to launch 60 more Starlink satellites into Earth’s close orbit.
The Falcon 9 rocket was to take off yesterday from NASA’s Launch Complex 39A (39A Launch Complex) located at Kennedy Space Center.
However, in the statement made by Spacex, it was informed that the launch was canceled due to adverse weather conditions.
60 Starlink launch canceled
It is stated that the new date for the launch will be announced later.
While Spacex has sent more than 700 Starlink satellites to space so far to provide internet, approximately 650 of them are now working without any problems.
The company aims to send about 40 thousand satellites into space in order to spread its internet network to the whole world.
A LARGER SCALE TEST STAGE WILL BE HELD THIS YEAR
The Starlink service, which the company provides internet from the satellite, has been tested by some SpaceX engineers and Elon Musk himself for a while. A larger-scale testing phase will take place this year. Users selected for beta tests will use a small terminal to access the internet .
