SpaceX rocket to launch for first time since September blast

euronews (in English) - Saturday, 14 January 2017
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. If all goes smoothly, SpaceX will launch its Falcon 9 rocket tomorrow—the first launch since September’s explosion https://t.co/ffxjZJ73DU— WIRED (@WIRED) January 14, 2017 SpaceX’s 2015 crash led to $260 million loss, internal data shows; hopes high for satellite web service https://t.co/BEQmCjqjWo— Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) January 13, 2017
