  • SpaceX delays push Starship flight, two Falcon 9 launches into the same 25-hour period

SpaceX's first Starlink mission in 2021 has been postponed due to bad weather, delaying the launch of 60 internet satellites.

SpaceX Falcon 9 Launched A Set of 60 Satellites On Its 100th Flight.

The SpaceX launch was originally pencilled in for January 14 but was scrubbed and pushed forward by four days.

On Tuesday, SpaceX also flushed the next back-up period to allow more time to SpaceX for pre-flight checks and scheduling.

One fan tweeted: "Will be a hell of a day if you launch Wednesday".

SpaceX is known to conduct huge feats and tasks, but this unique launch will be one-of-a-kind and perhaps the beginning of something fresh for the business.

The service, which beams high-speed internet down to Earth from its satellite constellation, was recently switched on in the United Kingdom having previously only been available in North America.

The Starlink payload will fly aboard the company's signature Falcon 9 rocket from Launchpad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.

The reusable booster stage used on tomorrow's mission has already been to space seven times, including four Starlink missions and SpaceX's first demo flight of the Crew Dragon capsule in March 2019.

SN9 is the next iteration of the inter-planetary launch vehicle prototype and is due to launch on its first suborbital flight.

The spacecraft would debut more than just a month after its previous version, the SN8, failed to land at the Boca Chica facility of SpaceX in South Texas and exploded into a ball of fire. The replacement engines were more or less fully installed by January 16th. At present, the start is scheduled for 6:24 a.m. PT (9:24 a.m. ET), and the new outlook reveals an 80 percent probability of decent raise and landing conditions.

SpaceX will have a live feed on its official YouTube channel for people to watch (posted here).

While it remains significant logistical challenges, the launch of two Falcon 9 orbital missiles and a booster landing in approximately 25 hours is a more likely proposition.
