SpaceX to launch another batch of Starlink satellites on Monday

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX plans to continue weekly launches of 60 Starlink satellites at a time with at least two planned for the coming week.

The private space company, and now growing internet provider, has not disclosed its next Falcon 9 launches but Federal Aviation Authority flight restrictions show several potential windows for two launches.

SpaceX received approval Friday from the 45th Space Wing, which oversees the eastern range, for a Falcon 9 lift off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Base Sunday night carrying more Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit.

A planned launch on Sunday night was delayed due to unfavorable weather conditions and rescheduled for 10:59 p.m. on Monday.

Up range, another Falcon 9 is scheduled to liftoff in the early hours of Tuesday at 1:17 a.m. from Kennedy Space Center Launchpad 39A, also with about 60 Starlink satellites. That launch is approved by the 45th Space Wing and Space Force weather officers are predicting a 60% chance of favorable liftoff conditions. Read from source….
