SpaceX is postponing a Falcon 9 rocket launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base.
The launch was originally scheduled for 8:47 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29. According to a Twitter post from SpaceX, the launch is now planned for Monday, January 30 at 8:34 a.m. PT, due to the completion of pre-launch checkouts.
The rocket will deliver 49 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit, along with D-Orbit’s ION Satellite Carrier "SCV009 Eclectic Elena."
About eight minutes after liftoff, SpaceX will aim to land the rocket's first stage booster on the Of Course I Still Love You drone ship stationed in the Pacific Ocean.
The booster being used in this mission has been used in six other missions.
A live webcast of the launch is scheduled to begin about five minutes before liftoff.
If needed, there is an additional launch opportunity on the same day at 12:31 p.m. PT.
