SpaceX Announced Delay of its Rocket Launch

SpaceX announced the delay of its spacecraft’s liftoff from the Earth, stating that the launch has been postponed to February 21, 2018.

According to the SpaceX, the crew at the Vandenberg launchpad required extra time to run the final checkouts of the upgraded fairing used to protect the payload of its Falcon 9 rocket. The company has focused on using completely reusable rockets, and further intends to ensure it is making progress on that front.

SpaceX said in a comment to BBC, that “Both the payload and the rocket itself are healthy”.

The rocket is mainly intended to carry a Spanish radar imaging satellite, Paz, however, it will also bring SpaceX’s own Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b internet satellites into orbit. If everything works out as planned, they will help start a constellation of broadband satellites that would provide gigabit internet speeds around the globe. The delay in launch of its much promising rocket, by several days speaks volumes about SpaceX’s intentions and quality of rocket launches.
