SpaceX Launch Delayed Until Monday
January 3, 2014 | WMFE - SpaceX will try again Monday to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The company had scheduled a satellite launch Friday.
The satellite will provide communications across Southeast Asia and Africa.
It'll launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket.
Additional launch opportunities extend from Jan. 8 through Jan. 12.
SpaceX is eager to expand its launch capability on the Space Coast. The California-based company recently was awarded a lease of an old shuttle launch pad at Kennedy Space Center.
It also is considering a proposed launch complex in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
Eventually SpaceX hopes to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station as NASA turns its attention to Mars.
