SpaceX's Starlink mission and Crew-5 astronaut launch will both lift off on Oct.

SpaceX has delayed the liftoff of its next Starlink satellite batch in order to launch four astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA on Wednesday (Oct. 5). .

In what appears to be a rocket traffic jam for SpaceX, the company announced Tuesday (Oct. 4) that it pushed back the planned launch of 52 Starlink internet satellites from California's Vandenberg Space Force Base to no earlier than Wednesday (Oct. 5) — a one-day delay — to focus on the launch of  the Crew-5 mission for NASA, the company's next astronaut flight. .

PT, for Falcon 9's launch of Starlink from California," SpaceX wrote (opens in new tab) in another message.

That update refers to SpaceX's Starlink launch from Vandenberg, which was originally slated to launch on Monday (Oct. 3), but was delayed to Tuesday to allow extra time for prelaunch rocket checks.

The Starlink delay, however, allows SpaceX to fully focus on the launch of Crew-5, its fifth operational astronaut flight for NASA.

The mission will launch American astronauts Nicole Mann and Josh Casada, Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata and Russian cosmonaut Anna Kikina to the International Space Station from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Meanwhile, SpaceX has yet a third Falcon 9 rocket launch waiting in the wings to follow Wednesday's Crew-5 and Starlink doubleheader. .

That third Falcon 9 rocket is currently scheduled to launch two communications satellites for Intelsat, Galaxy 33 and Galaxy 34, on Thursday (Oct. 6) at 7:07 p.m.

It will lift off from SpaceX's pad Space Launch Complex 40 of the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station near the Kennedy Space Center. .
