UPDATE for 2:06 pm ET: SpaceX has called off today's launch attempt of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying 60 Starlink internet satellites due to bad weather at the rocket's landing drone ship "Just Read The Instructions" in the Atlantic Ocean. .

— SpaceX will launch another big batch of Starlink satellites into orbit for the company's burgeoning megaconstellation today (Sept. 17), and you can watch the action live online. .

The California-based company is scheduled to loft 60 Starlink internet satellites on its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket from Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida no earlier than 2:19 p.m.

Today’s flight, referred to as Starlink 12 by SpaceX, is actually the 13th big batch of satellites the company has shot into space.

However, the company has been systematically de-orbiting its initial batch of 60 satellites that were launched in May 2019.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk has said that the company needs to launch between 500 and 800 satellites in order to begin rolling out service. .

The Starlink broadband internet is in a private beta-testing phase now, but it will be available for the public to start beta-testing later this year, SpaceX representatives have said.

Today's launch marks the 94st flight overall for SpaceX’s workhorse two-stage Falcon 9 rocket.

Flying previously flown boosters has become commonplace for SpaceX, as the company continues to prove the Falcon 9's reliability.

Today's launch will mark the second time one of the company's fleet of veteran boosters will attempt to launch and land for the sixth time. .

In fact, this mission marks the 17th flight of 2020 for SpaceX, with Falcon 9 earning the title of most-flown American rocket earlier this year — a superlative it snagged from a chief competitor, United Launch Alliance's Atlas V. .
