Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 January 2017
SpaceX is set to resume space travel four months after a rocket exploded while fueling. The latest Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base on Jan. 14th. The rocket will carry a payload of satellites into orbit. Back in September at Cape Canaveral, a Falcon 9 exploded on the launch pad, destroying the rocket and its payload, a nearly $200 million satellite. Despite the September setback, the company has successfully launched 27 rockets, only two have failed.
