SpaceX aborts launch of Falcon 9 rocket carrying 46 Starlink satellites

SpaceX aborted the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying a payload of the company’s Starlink internet satellites just before liftoff on Thursday (July 21).

The Falcon 9 rocket was just 46 seconds away from launch when mission controllers announced the abort. The rocket, which has flown three times before, was set to launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The mission is carrying 46 of the company’s Starlink internet satellites and would have marked SpaceX‘s 32nd launch of 22, surpassing the company’s 2021 record of 31 launches.
