"Space-X" launch expected today - FOX 13 News

"Space-X" launch expected today

Posted: Updated:
The countdown is back on... at Cape Canaveral.  Crews are trying again to launch a new "Space-X" rocket.

The launch was scheduled to take off last night, but that got scrubbed because of an equipment issue.

The rocket is now set to take off around 5:45 p.m. today.

Things could get delayed again though... this time, because of weather.

There's only about a 60% chance of favorable conditions.

This same mission was also delayed last month, after a helium leak.

This will be the first of 17 small satellites for a communications company.

If it doesn't go up tonight, they may have to wait another week before they can try again.
