Tech billionaire Elon Musk's SpaceX firm had planned to launch the satellite on July 14, but announced just a day before that it was pushing back blast-off "to take a closer look at the second stage, swap hardware if needed".

For the first time in its history, SpaceX has caught both parts of the rocket's containment shell. Thus, there's no active way to control their movements, and the best SpaceX has come up with is using fishing boats with giant nets attached, to capture the fairings before they fall into the ocean. For years, the company has routinely reclaimed the thrusters: after the first stage spends most of its fuel, it separates from the second stage of the rocket, and then heads to a vertical landing on offshore platforms or a land platform.
SpaceX estimates that up to $6 million per launch can be saved if catching fairings goes successfully. Less than two months later, the company's specialists managed to catch one of the fairing parts.
