SpaceX Starship Texas launch cancelled
South Padre Island, Texas –
SpaceX canceled the first launch attempt of its giant rocket on Monday.
Elon Musk and his company planned to launch a Starship rocket some 400 feet from the southern tip of Texas, near the Mexican border. SpaceX has postponed the launch due to problems with the first stage booster.
There were no people or satellites on board the attempt. No retries until at least Wednesday.
The company plans to use Starship to send astronauts and cargo to the moon and eventually to Mars.
