SpaceX launch scrubbed again, standing down to update satellite software

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket (in center, in a horizontal position), is readied for launch on a supply mission to the International Space Station on historic launch pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, U.S., February 17, 2017.

The payload itself is the heaviest satellite payload SpaceX has ever attempted.

SpaceX postponed a launch of 60 satellites into low-Earth orbit that was scheduled for Thursday night, possibly until next week, citing a need for software updates.

Earlier this week, Kremer was dialed into a conference call with SpaceX CEO Elon Musk about the Starlink mission.

The Starlink mission is set to deliver those first 60 internet satellites to orbit when it finally launches.

As with all SpaceX missions, the company will be live streaming the event from start to finish. "It's possible that some of these satellites may not work", said Musk.

SpaceX reportedly made a decision to scrub the launch due to issues with the software that makes the satellites tick. "There's a small possibility that all of these satellites will not work". More than 7,500 of those satellites will be in very-low-earth orbit (VLEO) to reduce latency on the ground.

Falcon 9's booster will touch down on the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You in the Atlantic Ocean about eight minutes after liftoff.

As the 60 satellites slowly deploy, it will look like "spreading a deck of cards on a table", Musk said. "They don't know", Kremer added.

Elon Musk 's plan to beam high-speed internet to Earth using thousands of satellites is expected to launch tonight. They will move to an altitude of 550km under their own power. Musk said he is concerned about the solar panel deployment, and he noted that there are two different deployment mechanisms on the satellites for this goal. "Also, 6 more launches of 60 sats needed for minor coverage, 12 for moderate".

Several companies are also trying to create a faster internet through low-orbit satellites, but SpaceX is leading the pack. He said providing 3% of the world's internet market could bring in roughly $30 billion. Each satellite is equipped with a navigation system that allows SpaceX to precisely position the satellites, track orbiting debris and avoid collisions.

That makes Starlink key to generating the cash that SpaceX needs to fund Musk's larger dream of developing new spacecraft capable of flying paying customers to the moon and eventually trying to colonize Mars.
