CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - SpaceX has once again delayed the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral due to weather concerns.
Two SpaceX launches were planned from Cape Canaveral this week.
The first one was scheduled for Thursday night but had to be rescheduled to Friday due to unfavorable weather. The weather was again a concern on Friday evening because of a low cloud deck, so now the space company is now targeting Saturday, Jan 29, at 6:11 p.m.
The Falcon 9 rocket will carry Italy's COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG-2) satellite into orbit. CSG-2 is designed to provide critical data and emergency risk prevention.
A second launch of a Starlink mission was planned for Saturday at 3 p.m. before the COSMO-SkyMed satellite mission was rescheduled. SpaceX has not said how the delays have impacted the Starlink mission.
