Posted: Sat, Sep 2, 2023, 9:21 AM ET (1321 GMT)
One Falcon 9 launched Thursday while another was postponed by a technical problem. A Falcon 9 lifted off at 10:21 pm EDT (0221 GMT Friday) from Cape Canaveral, Florida, placing 22 Starlink V2 mini satellites into orbit on the Group 6-13 mission. SpaceX waited out poor weather from the aftermath of Hurricane Idalia that delayed the launch from earlier in the evening. However, SpaceX scrubbed a Falcon 9 launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California Thursday morning, citing an issue with one of the rocket's engines. The launch is carrying a second set of Tranche 0 satellites for the Space Development Agency.
