Bad weather in California forced rocket launch company SpaceX to postpone its upcoming flight to place 10 small Iridium satellites into orbit. The new date is January 14th.

The headline-worthy bad weather, of extraordinary high winds and rain, as well as other schedule conflicts, have forced the delay.

The Iridium satellites have been in place atop the Falcon 9 rocket since December 29th. The 10 satellites will help provide mobile communications to global users. SpaceX is contracted to launch another 60 of the satellites.
