The American company SpaceX has decided to postpone the launch of 53 more mini-satellites into orbit for its Starlink network on Saturday. As she noted on her Twitter page on Friday, the launch of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle from the Cape Canaveral cosmodrome (Florida) is hampered by “adverse weather conditions.”
The launch was scheduled to take place on November 12 at 07:41 local time. Now it is scheduled for November 13 at 07:19 local time.
The Starlink network is designed to provide Internet access by deploying a large number of devices weighing 260 kg. According to SpaceX, the launch of a total of 11 thousand satellites and their commissioning will cost $ 10 billion. The company assures that it will be able to provide broadband Internet with a traffic speed of 1 gigabit per second, which corresponds to the 5G standard.
Since May 2019, SpaceX has already launched 1,844 mini-satellites into orbit.
