The American SpaceX rocket company is set to fly again. It’s preparing to launch a Falcon 9 vehicle from California on Saturday. The test is the first since a launchpad explosion in September grounded operations. It’s seen as crucial to see whether Elon Musk’s company has identified and corrected the cause of the accident.
