SpaceX Postpones Falcon 9 Launch/Landing to Monday
SpaceX has decided to postpone one day, until Monday, its Falcon 9 return-to-flight launch of 11 ORBCOMM OG2 communications satellites and its historic attempt to land the rocket’s first stage back at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL. The new launch time is 8:33 pm ET.
Musk tweeted late this afternoon that the decision to wait until Monday was to improve the chances of a successful landing, but ORBCOMM issued a press release attributing the delay to a desire to take more time to chill the supercooled liquid oxygen.
