SpaceX scrubs satellite launch (and landing) again

For the second day in a row, SpaceX scrubbed the launch of the SES-9 telecommunications satellite, as well as the Falcon 9 rocket landing attempt that was due to follow.

The abort came with just 1 minute and 40 seconds left before the scheduled 3:47 p.m. PT (6:47 p.m. ET) liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The reason for the scrub was not immediately released, and it was not clear when the next launch opportunity will come up.
