SpaceX once again postponed an attempt to launch a Falcon 9 rocket on Thursday, citing an update to satellite software.
The postponement comes one day after SpaceX was expected to launch 60 satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Wednesday night before postponing due to upper level winds.
Officials with SpaceX said they have created a satellite constellation system called Starlink, with the goal to provide broadband internet service worldwide.
Officials said Wednesday's weather was 80% favorable for the Falcon 9 launch of Starlink before the postponement.
