Stormy weather in Florida delays Falcon 9 launch | Spaceflight Now
SpaceX has delayed a planned Falcon 9 launch with a Japanese communications satellite to Friday due to inclement weather on Florida’s Space Coast.
The launch window is unchanged, opening at 1:21 a.m. EDT (0521 GMT) and extending for two hours Friday, to put the JCSAT 14 commercial communications satellite into orbit for SKY Perfect JSAT Corp. of Tokyo.
The 229-foot-tall rocket could have been exposed to storms streaming over Central Florida on Wednesday if SpaceX went ahead with a launch attempt Thursday morning.
The Falcon 9 will blast off from Cape Canaveral’s seaside Complex 40 launch pad.
