SpaceX halts launch of internet satellites
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.
