SpaceX delays launch of Starlink and BlackSky satellites for more rocket checks

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX is standing down from the launch of its next batch of Starlink satellites to allow time for additional preflight checks of the Falcon 9. 

The California-based spaceflight company was scheduled to launch another batch of its Starlink internet-beaming satellites and two satellites for BlackSky on a previously flown Falcon 9 rocket at 4:18 p.m. EST (2018 GMT) today from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. However, the company chose to delay the launch attempt, and a new date has not yet been set.
