SpaceX cancelled its planned May 16th launch, the second such delay this week. The first cancellation was down to bad weather, but this latest delay was down to a need to “triple check” the rocket’s software.

A Tweet from Elon Musk’s team said: “Always want to do everything we can on the ground to maximise mission success, next launch opportunity in about a week.”

The Falcon 9 rocket was carrying 60 ‘Starlink’ satellites which were to be deployed in Low Earth orbit and are the pioneer craft for Musk’s planned global broadband satellites.
