SpaceX Delays Launch Until Sunday Night

7 September 2018
Spaceflight Now reports that SpaceX delayed the planned launch of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying a commercial communications satellite for the Asia-Pacific region “until at least Sunday night, 24 hours later than previously scheduled.” Officials delayed the launch, according to Telesat spokesperson Gerald Nagler, but did not provide a new launch date. However, the website for Patrick AFB, which houses the US Air Force’s 45h Space Wing, “was updated late Thursday to show the mission is scheduled for liftoff Sunday.” A four-hour launch window will open at 11:28 p.m. EDT Sunday. SpaceX later “tweeted to confirm the one-day delay.” (Image Credit: NASA)
