 A US Falcon 9 rocket was cancelled two seconds before ignition, a precedent a few days ago


The Falcon 9 rocket was originally scheduled to be launched in Florida at 9:43 p.m. Eastern time, but it was cancelled two seconds before the ignition. SpaceX did not immediately explain the reason for the cancellation and did not give a time for the next launch.

This is the second time that SpaceX has temporarily cancelled the launch in a few days, the report said. Another Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to launch on October 1, carrying 60 satellites of Starlink Internet system. However, due to irregular readings of ground sensors, the launch was cancelled 18 seconds before ignition.

The GPS satellites carried by the Falcon 9 rocket belong to the block III series. At present, three satellites are in orbit, which will be launched in December 2018, August 2019 and June 2020 respectively. (end)
