The weather was cloudy but it looks like it wasn't enough to stop SpaceX from launching a rocket.
The launch of a Dragon spacecraft by SpaceX CRS-10 is the first from Pad 39-A after the space shuttle flight ended on July 8, 2011. It will be the Hawthorne space company's first launch from Launch Complex 39A, the pad where the Apollo and space shuttle missions launched.
Samsung Chief Arrested on Bribery Charges in Corruption Scandal
Choi Gee-sung, a high profile lieutenant and Lee mentor, might take up some slack, but probably not all of it. President Park remains in office, but has been stripped of her powers while the investigation is underway.
The rocket, which was sent up from Launch Complex 39A - the same spot from which astronauts flew to the moon almost a century ago - is carrying a load of supplies for the International Space Station (ISS).
The launch of a SpaceX rocket carrying an experiment from Knox County students was postponed Saturday after concerns at launch time.
The Falcon 9 rocket is a two-stage craft, both of which are created to return to Earth for use for other space missions.
For the third time in the company's history, one of its Falcon 9 rockets successfully launched and returned its first-stage boosters to land, with its boosters touching down just miles from where it first took off.
Players pay tribute to Mike Ilitch at Fox Theatre
Ilitch and give a hug, it's nice to be able to do that", he said, according to a report by George Sipple in the Deroit Free Press. Despite the city's decline in the decades following, Ilitch stayed in his hometown, earning him much admiration.
The next launch attempt - provided everything can be fixed quickly - would be Sunday morning.
This is SpaceX's tenth mission to deliver supplies for NASA to the space station. "Standing down to investigate", serial entrepreneur Elon Musk, who owns and operates SpaceX, tweeted on Saturday in response to the delay.
Today's launch was a big milestone for SpaceX, as it was the company's first launch from Launch Complex 39A. However, just before 15 seconds of the launch, the company called it off because of a technical issue with the booster's upper-stage. The accident during prelaunch testing heavily damaged that pad. But by recovering the Falcon 9 rockets, SpaceX saves the estimated US$62 million cost of building a new one each time it wants to launch something into space.
But now, after returning to flight in January, and making a historic launch on Sunday, SpaceX could well have embarked on a glorious year.
