SpaceX announced on Monday it has rescheduled its Falcon 9 launch of Starlink satellites to Tuesday, November 24.
“Now targeting Tuesday, November 24 at 9:13 p.m. EST for Falcon 9’s launch of Starlink, when weather conditions in the recovery area should improve,” said the company earlier today.
The Falcon 9 was set to launch Starlink satellites on Sunday, but the latter was scrubbed, “to complete data reviews.” The backup launch opportunity was set for Monday at 6:34pm PST/9:34pm EST, but that has been changed to tomorrow at 6:13pm PST/9:13 EST.
Starlink internet is currently in beta in the United States and Canada, and so far early reviews for those living in rural areas have praised the service for its fast download speeds and low latency, compared to traditional satellite internet.
