SpaceX Falcon 9

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket scheduled to launch from pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 9:17 a.m. aborted the launch last-minute due to a bad ground sensor reading.

The mission would have carried SpaceX’s 13th batch of approximately 60 Starlink broadband satellites into orbit. With today’s launch, SpaceX would have deployed 775 Starlink satellites to date, according to Spaceflight Now.

Several previous launches have been cancelled last-minute due to poor weather. The next launch window for this rocket is still pending.
