SpaceX canceled the launch of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle with Starlink Internet satellites 18 seconds before launch. The reason was problems with ground equipment.

This was reported by the company’s press service.

The launch was scheduled for 9:17 a.m. on the East Coast of the United States. Preparations for the launch were in normal mode, but 18 seconds before the launch, experts reported “unusual indicators of ground equipment sensors”, in connection with which the launch was canceled.

A new launch date has not yet been set.

Earlier it was reported that Ilona Maska’s company SpaceX has planned to launch 60 Internet satellites of the Starlink system on October 1 and 2, as well as a third-generation military GPS satellite.
