SpaceX plans to have revamped Falcon 9 ready for launch in December | ExtremeTech

SpaceX suffered a major setback when its Falcon 9 rocket exploded shortly after liftoff on a resupply mission to the International Space Station back in June. The company has now announced that it expects the Falcon 9 to hit the launchpad again barely six months after the event in December. The rocket has been revamped to prevent a reoccurrence of the failure, but SpaceX is taking all possible precautions. If it had a second failure by some tragic twist of fate, that might spell the end for SpaceX’s manned mission plans.
