As predicted, F9 will be rolled back into the hangar for repair to its engine or engines that were affected during the launch abort.

After an aborted launch at T-minus 2 seconds Friday night, SpaceX has lowered the Falcon 9 rocket for the U.S. Space Force's GPS 3 SV04 mission horizontal at Cape Canaveral's Complex 40 launch pad for return to a nearby hangar.

SpaceX engineers in the hangar are expected to inspect the rocket and fix the problem that triggered a hold in the countdown Friday night just as the Falcon 9 rocket began its engine ignition sequence.

Elon Musk, SpaceX's founder and CEO, tweeted that an "unexpected pressure rise in the turbomachinery gas generator" caused the abort, referring to a component in the Falcon 9's Merlin main engines.

SpaceX hasn't set a new target launch date for the mission, which was set to carry a GPS navigation satellite into orbit for the Space Force. The company proceeded with the launch of a different Falcon 9 rocket Tuesday from nearby pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, successfully deploying 60 more Starlink internet satellites.

SpaceX also appears to have recalled its "Just Read The Instructions" drone ship back to Florida's Space Coast from its position in the Atlantic Ocean northeast of Cape Canaveral. The vessel was on station for landing of the Falcon 9 booster after launching the GPS satellite.

The lowering of the Falcon 9 rocket on its launch pad and return of the drone ship to Port Canaveral suggest, at a minimum, the GPS launch won't happen within the next week.

It would appear that SpaceX is standing down the droneship for the GPS mission and recalling it to Port Canaveral.

Tug Hawk and Just Read the Instructions droneship got underway from the LZ shortly after the Starlink mission earlier today.

Hello there Hawk and JRTI! Good to see them back in the safe harbor of Port Canaveral. The journey was slow and radio chatter revealed Hawk was having engine problems. Hopefully they can address it before the next run of missions. #SpaceXFleet #JRTI

Did someone order wings? It is dinner time after all. The view from FleetCam
@RustysInThePort as they were approaching the north pier shows off the deck extensions quite nicely as well as just how high the engine containers are stacked. #JRTI

What a pleasant surprise and thrill it was to see the SpaceX  Marmac 303 landing platform for the 1st stage rockets being towed into Cape Canaveral tonight. #SpaceX #Rockets #PortCanaveral #CapeCanaveral #KennedySpaceCenter #Marmac303

ЦитатаПеренос запуска миссии Crew-1: старт состоится не ранее начала ноября
"Запуск миссии NASA SpaceX Crew-1 на МКС ​​теперь нацелен не раньше, чем на начало-середину ноября, что даст SpaceX дополнительное время для завершения тестирования оборудования и анализа данных нестандартного поведения газогенератора двигателя Merlin ракеты Falcon 9, наблюдаемого во время недавней попытки запуска миссии GPS III SV04", - заявили в NASA.
"Команды активно работают над вопросом по двигателю, и мы должны получить все данные в течение ближайшей недели" - сказала Кэти Людерс, помощник директора NASA по пилотируемым миссиям агентства...

At the Sentinel-6 briefing, NASA's Tim Dunn says launch preparations on a Falcon 9 are going "incredibly well"; still scheduled for Nov. 10.

Dunn says the engine investigation after the Falcon 9 abort 2 weeks ago is ongoing, including taking the engines from that vehicle back to McGregor for testing; there is a "path forward" for any rework needed for the Sentinel-6 launch while keeping the Nov. 10 launch date.

The GPS III-4 spacecraft is being returned to its processing facility while SpaceX investigates an issue with the mission's Falcon 9 launch vehicle. Do not expect another launch attempt in October.

We are making a lot of good progress with @SpaceX on engine testing to better understand the unexpected behavior observed during a recent non-NASA launch. (1/5)

55 мин. назад

It's too early to report findings at this point, as @SpaceX continues testing to validate what's believed to be the most credible cause. (2/5)

54 мин. назад

Based on our current analysis, @SpaceX is replacing one Merlin engine on the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launch vehicle and one engine for Crew-1 rocket that displayed similar early-start behavior during testing. (3/5)

We are still targeting the Sentinel-6 launch for Nov. 10 from Vandenberg Air Force Base as we expect to complete forward work in time. (4/5)

54 мин. назад

We are also still working towards a mid-November launch for Crew-1. We will want a few days between Sentinel-6 and Crew-1 to complete data reviews and check performance. Most importantly, we will fly all our missions when we are ready. (5/5) #LaunchAmerica
