Read our earlier story below:
After multiple launch attempts scrubbed this week, SpaceX plans to launch its Falcon 9 rocket Saturday night.
The launch window is set for Saturday at 8:43 p.m. Eastern Time.
SpaceX says they were forced to stand down Friday due to continued unfavorable weather conditions.
The launch is part of SpaceX’s Starlink mission, which is creating a global network of satellites that provide high-speed internet access.
The company recently announced that Starlink internet is now available on all seven continents, after confirming a connection with a research station in Antarctica.
If the launch happens, Channel 9 will stream the launch here.
