SpaceX postpones the launch of the Starlink satellite to next week due to the marine effects of Hurricane Hillary

SpaceX has delayed its scheduled launch of 21 new Starlink satellites until early Tuesday (August 22) due to the effects of Hurricane Hillary in the Pacific Ocean. You’ll be able to watch it live next week online.

A Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Starlink spacecraft is scheduled to lift off from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California on Tuesday at 2:04 a.m. EDT (0604 GMT; 11:04 p.m. local time California on Aug. 21). The rocket launch was originally scheduled for early Thursday (August 17) and was already one day late. The impact of Hurricane Hillary on missile recovery operations led to a delay of another four days.
