If you were watching Sunday during SpaceX's live webcast of their latest Starlink launch, you were likely surprised and perhaps briefly scared when at the last second (literally at countdown 0:00), the Falcon 9 launch was aborted. The system's computer reported an engine power issue which prevented the launch and likely saved the rocket and its payload. A batch of 60 Starlink satellites to add to the fast growing constellation.|
The new launch is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:16am EST from Kennedy Space Center.
If you subscribe to their channel on Youtube, you'll get a notification once the live transmission is about to begin.
JoseQ's Look at this Thing
I never get tired of seeing these massive rockets land, so whenever possible I will tune-in and watch. If you're a fan of space and/or space travel, SpaceX is the company to keep an eye on. It's a good representation of what the greatest engineering minds in the world are doing.
