(KFVS) - SpaceX was scheduled to launch Starlink on Thursday night May 16 but had to scratch the liftoff. They will try again next week.

According to Elon Musk, several similar launches are expected to generate more power to Earth than the Space Station.

SpaceX was expected to launch Starlink on Wednesday, May 15 but experienced a weather delay.

Starlink was designed to provide continual coverage around the world to connect end users with low latency, high bandwidth broadband services.

According to SpaceX officials this happens by using a network of thousands of satellites in low Earth orbit.

SpaceX experts said Starlink’s simplified design is more capable than its first experimental iteration.

SpaceX is scheduled for six launches of 60 satellites with the goal of giving one terabit of bandwidth to Earth.
