SpaceX delays Starlink launch amid busy week as weather threatens

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX has postponed the latest flight of its Starlink satellite fleet this morning (Nov. 12) due to poor weather conditions here at the launch site. 

The California-based rocket builder planned to launch 53 Starlink satellites from Florida at 7:41 a.m. EST (1241 GMT) Friday to continue expanding its fleet. But just under an hour before liftoff, SpaceX announced on Twitter that it was standing down because of rainy conditions. The company said it would instead be targeting its backup launch date, Saturday (Nov. 13).
