Originally scheduled for a 6:57 p.m. launch time, SpaceX announced that the launch would be delayed due to upper-level winds.

SpaceX is continuing to grow its constellation of mini-satellites to provide internet services around the planet.

The first stage booster of the rocket is expected to land on a droneship out in the Atlantic Ocean.
