SN9, the ninth prototype of SpaceX’s Starship, was scheduled to perform a test flight today, launching from Boca Chica, Texas. However, high winds forced SpaceX to abandon their test. The company carved out a six-hour launch window this afternoon, but mother nature had other plans. The area was plagued by windy weather throughout the day, and although the company had hoped the winds would die down by around 3 p.m., they persisted.
SN9 is expected to try to fly again later this week, as the company has extended road closures in Boca Chica until Friday, January 29.
