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.
