SpaceX called off the launch of a new fleet of Starlink internet satellites on Thursday (Feb. 17) due to a "recovery issue" related to the mission's Falcon 9 rocket.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to launch 60 new Starlink satellites for the company's growing megaconstellation at 2:19 p.m.

"Standing down from today's Starlink launch due to recovery issue; vehicle and payload remain healthy," SpaceX representatives announced in a Twitter update.

You'll be able to watch the launch live here and on the Space.com homepage, courtesy of SpaceX, beginning about 15 minutes before liftoff.

You'll also be able to watch the launch directly via SpaceX here. .

SpaceX did not specify the nature of the "recovery issue," but it is presumably related to the company's plan to recover the first stage of the two-stage Falcon 9 rocket by landing it on the company's drone ship "Just Read the Instructions" in the Atlantic Ocean.

Recovering Falcon 9 rocket boosters is a key part of SpaceX's plan to reduce the cost of spaceflight while scaling up the company's launch pace.

SpaceX has launched more than 700 Starlink satellites into orbit to build a massive constellation designed to provide high-speed broadband internet access around the world.
