Launch Delays Quiet Space Coast
Private launch operators SpaceX and United Launch Alliance experienced launch delays but those may soon come to an end.
ULA announced the launch of a next-generation weather satellite is delayed until later this month. The Lockheed-Boeing joint venture says an issue with the Atlas v booster is to blame.
This is the second delay for this mission. Hurricane Matthew also put a pause on that launch. ULA is having the same problem on another Atlas 5 rocket launching from California.

founder Elon Musk told CNBC he plans to return to flight mid-December.
