SpaceX Postpones Launch Date Until January 14


Four months after a launch pad explosion sidelined SpaceX, the company was ready to return to flight on Sunday.

There was just one little problem: the weather.

SpaceX was set to launch Iridium communications satellites into orbit on Sunday from Vandenberg Air Force Base. However, high winds and rain led to the decision to postpone the launch.

The next opportunity will be January 14 at 9:54 am, according to a tweet from SpaceX.

Launch moving due to high winds and rains at Vandenberg. Other range conflicts this week results in next available launch date being Jan 14.
