Elon Musk: SpaceX rocket launch delayed until Monday for a better chance at landing
SpaceX will wait another 24 hours before it launches its Falcon 9 rocket out of its Cape Canaveral launch site.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted four hours before it was supposed to launch that the crew was punting for another 24 hours.
Launching on Monday night gives the rocket a 10% better chance of a good landing, Musk said. The additional time also gives the liquid oxygen further time to chill, said Orbcomm, one of the companies also involved in the launch.
