SpaceX fails to launch rocket for third time
SpaceX’s latest attempt to launch a rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Sunday night was scratched. A previous attempt on Thursday was also cancelled with only one minute and forty seconds left on the countdown clock.
The Falcon 9 rocket is trying to send a telecommunication satellite into high orbit for SES, a satellite communications company.
On Thursday the rocket was supposed to land on a drone ship, but SpaceX said in a press release that a “successful landing is not expected.”
SpaceX previously launched the Falcon 9 rocket from Los Angeles in January, which exploded upon landing on a floating barge in the Pacific.
