Space Coast, FL – An overcast day came with light intermittent showers on Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. However, that didn’t stop SpaceX for a continued countdown for the Falcon 9 launch of Transporter 2.
The Falcon 9 was slated to lift off today at 1456 EDT (1856 UTC). Weather was a little iffy but in the green for launch. Systems were all Go and healthy for ignition. Propellant was cleared to load at T-38 minutes and started loading at T-35 minutes.
A hold was called at T-30 seconds as a range violation was determined. Elon Musk explained his thoughts on the matter in a tweet:
Unfortunately, launch is called off for today, as an aircraft entered the “keep out zone”, which is unreasonably gigantic.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 29, 2021
There is simply no way that humanity can become a spacefaring civilization without major regulatory reform. The current regulatory system is broken.
The scrub of the launch was called and a twenty-four(24) hour recycle had been advised. Be sure to check out the Transporter 2 mission page for details about this launch. We'll be out again tomorrow keeping you posted.
