This isn’t the first time Tuesday’s Starlink mission, dubbed Starlink 17, has been delayed; It has been previously for the same reason several times due to weather and the need for additional checks on the Falcon 9 rocket.
This flight marks the eighth mission for this Falcon 9’s first stage, tying SpaceX’s record for reusability.
SpaceX’s webcast will begin about 15 minutes before liftoff. You can watch it above or directly from SpaceX here.
A disappointed Netizen reacts:
Us humans call that "today"
