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

In the meantime, let's compress the information that iOS and Android users have a number of applications that can track Starlink satellites. The US firm reported that the ninth party of the Starlink v1.0 satellites (Starlink V1 L9 or Starlink-9), originally planned to be launched on June 22, will be launched at 23:18 on 26 June.

The mission today will take off from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the Falcon 9 booster used for this mission has flown four times previously, including for Crew Dragon's first uncrewed demonstration mission, as well as twice before for earlier Starlink missions. "Will announce new target launch date once confirmed on the Range". Falcon 9 and its payloads, 57 Starlink satellites and 2 satellites from BlackSky, a Spaceflight customer, remain healthy.

The tenth Starlink mission will be the 12th launch mission for SpaceX this year. Next week, SpaceX has yet another launch scheduled for June 30 - a Global Positioning System satellite mission that is set to take off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

However, you might be able to see the deployed satellites later in the evening and subsequent evenings - updated times to follow.

SpaceX's Starlink constellation aims to provide high-speed broadband internet all over the world directly from space with the low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites. The satellites, part of the Starlink constellation, fly around the planet in chain-like formation providing internet connectivity which is touted to be fast, affordable and will be available even in the most remote regions of the world.
