SpaceX halts launch of in­ter­net satel­lites

The Kansas City Star - - News - — OR­LANDO SEN­TINEL

SpaceX’s Fal­con 9 rocket sat at Kennedy Space Cen­ter’s launch pad just be­fore 9:30 a.m. Sun­day and did not clear the gantry, end­ing the day’s at­tempt to carry 60 of the com­pany’s Star­link in­ter­net satel­lites to or­bit.

It ap­peared to be an is­sue with engine power, the com­pany said, which trig­gered the auto-abort.

“Over­all, the ve­hi­cle ap­pears to be in good health,” said Michael An­drews, a sup­ply chain su­per­vi­sor at SpaceX.

SpaceX said it will an­nounce a new launch date once it gets a new date ap­proved with the Air Force’s Eastern Range.
