SpaceX tweeted out Monday that a static fire for the rocket, a key step before setting a launch date, had been successful.
However, because of weather conditions in the recovery area, they did not offer up a launch date, saying the team was evaluating the "best launch opportunity."
The 45th Space Wing had already issued a forecast for the planned launch Tuesday, with a targeted launch time of 11:59 a.m. We don't know yet when the launch will happen now.
The Falcon 9 rocket will be carrying another batch of Starlink satellites into space, part of a constellation that would provide internet services around the world.
Whever it happens, the launch will be at Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
We will update you with a launch date as soon as it comes in.
