SpaceX back to launch on Nov 1?

September 9, 2015

SpaceX satellite launches could resume by November 1st, if reports from NASA Spaceflight are correct.

The news doesn’t come a day too soon, as SpaceX has a queue of satellites that have now been waiting since a June catastrophic failure of a SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket exploded just after take-off.

The reason was put down to a failed support strut on one of the rocket’s Helium tanks.

But whatever the reason the near-5 months delay has created headaches for a number of clients and their launch plans.
