SpaceX is standing down from the launch attempt of its thirteenth Starlink mission due to severe weather in the recovery area, which is likely to persist for a couple days. A new target launch date will be announced once confirmed.
This mission will lift off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, launching 60 Starlink satellites to orbit. Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported launch of Crew Dragon’s first flight to the International Space Station with NASA astronauts onboard and the ANASIS-II mission. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. One of Falcon 9’s fairing halves supported two previous Starlink launches.
