Published by NASASpaceflight on 08/31/2023
For the second time in two days, SpaceX scrubbed the launch of a batch of 13 communications and missile tracking satellites from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base on the Tranche 0 Flight 2 mission for the Space Development Agency (SDA) on Friday. An issue with engine 4 scrubbed the first attempt, with an unspecified issue scrubbing Friday’s attempt. However, SpaceX launched its Starlink Group 6-13 mission later on Thursday.
