SpaceX Delays Falcon 9 Rocket Launch Due to High-Altitude Winds

The launch window is instantaneous, which means that if the Falcon 9 can't get off the ground right on time, SpaceX will have to scrub for the day. The Falcon 9 is launching the PAZ satellite, but it's also rumored to be launching the first two Starlink satellites that will begin SpaceX's quest to start a broadband satellite network.

You can also use the embedded YouTube live video feed from this article to watch in real-time the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch.

Quietly on board will be two experimental broadband satellites, Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, a big first step in SpaceX's long-term plans to create satellite internet over the next decade. It adds: "Deployment of the remainder of that constellation will complete coverage and add capacity around the world". And that startup already has approval from the FCC to send internet satellites into orbit.

"Following careful review of this application by our International Bureau's excellent satellite engineering experts, I have asked my colleagues to join me in supporting this application and moving to unleash the power of satellite constellations to provide high-speed Internet to rural Americans", Pai said of SpaceX's proposal. To put things into perspective, the previous launch of Falcon Heavy cost $90million as its overall budget while the most powerful NASA mission Saturn V was launched with a budget of $1.1billion which is ten times greater than SpaceX. But SpaceX won't launch all 12,000 at once.

SpaceX's satellites may offer a direct-to-consumer wireless connection, a new option that will likely receive tons of blowback from current communications companies. The planned launch has generated much anticipation among Southland residents, many of whom witnessed a spectacle on December 22 when a Falcon 9 lifted off shortly after sunset.

The scale of the proposal, informally known as Starlink, is incredible.

In this case, the firm will attempt to recover the Falcon 9's payload fairings, which refer to the clam shell-like nose cone halves that protect the craft's payload. It flew last August and landed on a drone ship, writes Alan Boyle for GeekWire, and was then refurbished for the latest mission. SpaceX has claimed that it will not recover the booster that will be used to lift off Falcon 9 as it will be rolling out next generation of rockets this summer.

'It's like a giant catcher's mitt, in boat form... It's outfitted with large claw-like grabbers and a huge net to catch a falling fairing.
