Nothing has gone wrong, but the weather just really, really does not appear to want to collaborate with the company's strategies to launch another batch of its Starlink communications satellites into orbit.

Lift-off was scheduled for 10.54am local time (3.54pm BST) from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Saturday, with weather looking favourable before it was cancelled.

"Standing down from present-day launch of the tenth Starlink mission to let time for much more checkouts workforce is functioning to establish the upcoming launch possibility".

Forecasters at the U.S. Space Force's 45th Space Wing weather squadron predicted a 60% chance of favorable weather conditions going into today's launch attempt. A new launch date was not immediately announced.

However on a earlier launch in June, SpaceX launched 58 Starlink satellites in addition to three tiny imaging satellites from the corporate Planet.

Since Elon Musk's company began launching the small satellites over a year ago, astronomers and other observers have been surprised and even disturbed by the amount of sunlight the orbiting routers reflect, often interfering with scientific observations. SpaceX also attempted the launch late last month, but scrubbed the launch due to hardware issues. Liftoff is shortly before 4pm United Kingdom time, or 11am eastern time.

Blastoff was initially set for June but has been delayed a number of instances, most lately due to poor weather on Wednesday.

SpaceX postponed the most current launch of a new Starlink satellite fleet again Saturday (July 11) citing the need for more checks of the mission's Falcon 9 rocket.

You can look at the launch via the livestream underneath, which typically starts about 15 minutes ahead of liftoff.

Speaking of the move, SpaceX tweeted that the static fire test is completed, Falcon 9 launch of the ANASIS-II is planned on 14 July from SLC-40 located in Florida.

The launch will be the second Global Positioning System launch for SpaceX, and the initial launch happened in December 2018, however, that operation used a stretchy rocket without grid fins or legs since the Air Force determined the automobile could not execute the required operation trajectory and also fetch the first phase back. The rocket will try to land on certainly one of SpaceX's drone ships within the Atlantic following the launch, doubtlessly enabling the automobile to fly for the sixth time.

If all goes effectively, the 2 BlackSky satellites will deploy first, simply over an hour after takeoff.

The first stage of the rocket being used for the Starlink mission was used in four previous SpaceX launches, including two Starlink satellite missions.
