SpaceX launch of first South Korean military satellite delayed – CNET


The Falcon nine booster for the Anasis-II mission is a background-building rocket. It was the booster utilized to deliver NASA astronauts to the ISS in Could.


SpaceX has postponed a Falcon nine launch a few moments in the span of five times, with the latest hold off impacting the Anasis-II mission to mail a South Korean military satellite to orbit. The firm tweeted Monday that it was pushing back again blast-off “to choose a closer appear at the next stage, swap hardware if necessary.”

SpaceX also postponed its hottest Starlink start past Wednesday and then all over again on Saturday.

The Anasis-II mission will at some point lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Power Station in Florida. If it takes place just before the Starlink mission, which is at the moment awaiting a new start date, it will be SpaceX’s 12th start this 12 months, the 90th flight of a Falcon 9 and the next all round for this individual booster, which was very first flown in May possibly tosupply NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the Worldwide Space Station— the very first time a business company has carried out so. Ergo, it is got some historical past.

There is a backup launch window scheduled for the exact same time on July fifteen, but we are going to have to wait around and see how rapidly the specialized issues can be worked out. 

The payload, Anasis-II, is South Korea’s initially military services communications satellite. Simply because of its use in the navy, there is not a good deal of information and facts about Anasis-II, but for the simple fact it really is based mostly off the Eurostar E3000 satellite bus, in accordance to the Daily Astronaut. 

We’ll update this write-up the moment we have a new launch day.
