On Monday, SpaceX decided not to attempt its massive rocket’s first launch.
The roughly 400-foot Starship rocket was scheduled to be launched by Elon Musk and his business from the southernmost point of Texas, close to the Mexican border.
Because of a malfunction with the first-stage booster, SpaceX had to postpone the launch.
For this effort, there were no passengers or satellites on board. The next attempt won’t happen until at least Wednesday.
The business will use Starship to carry astronauts and freight to the moon and Mars.
