SpaceX Florida launches and booster landings delayed
Two SpaceX missions that were set to fly with less than 12 hours between them have been delayed to later this week and possibly beyond, scrubbing the likelihood of back-to-back launches – and booster landings – for the time being.
Up first is OneWeb Launch 15, a mission slated to take 40 of the company's internet-beaming satellites from Kennedy Space Center to low-Earth orbit. Liftoff of Falcon 9 from pad 39A is scheduled for 5:27 p.m. EST Thursday, Dec. 8, which marks a 48-hour delay from the previous target. SpaceX did not disclose reasons for the push.
After liftoff, Falcon 9's 162-foot first stage will return to Cape Canaveral Space Force Station's Landing Zone 1 or 2, generating powerful sonic booms during descent. Spectators and residents should be prepared for the booms, which can be startling.
