SpaceX has postponed the launch of satellites due to the launch of a secret Pentagon shuttle

The company Ilona Mask “lost” the spaceport at Cape Canaveral to test the American military spacecraft.
 
The launch of another batch of 60 satellites into orbit to deploy Starlink’s Internet coverage has been postponed. On Saturday, May 16, SpaceX reported on Twitter that the transfer was related to the launch of the Atlas V launch vehicle with the top-secret X-37B reusable unmanned spacecraft of the US Air Force, which had previously been canceled and rescheduled due to bad weather.
 
“Due to the conflict (of interests – ed.) At the launch site, Starlink satellites are scheduled to be launched on Monday at 03.32 (the time of the US East Coast),” SpaceX said.
 
Later, a new message appeared about the launch being postponed to 3.10 Tuesday, May 19, due to a tropical cyclone.
 
Recall that on April 23, SpaceX successfully launched the next 60 Starlink Internet satellites into orbit, bringing the orbital constellation to 420 spacecraft.
 
The company is currently the largest satellite operator in the world.
 
In the future, it is planned to deploy an orbital grouping of 12 thousand devices of this type (and subsequently of 30 thousand) to create a full-blown network that will provide Earth inhabitants with broadband Internet access in any corner of the planet.
 
The total investment for the project is estimated at ten billion dollars.
