SpaceX Falcon launch at Vandenberg has been delayed

The Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to lift off at 6:17 a.m. local time (1417 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 4E at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base.

PAZ was created by Airbus for Hisdesat which is the Spanish national satellite company's subsidiary.

The two satellites were originally scheduled to be launched on Saturday, but that event was also canceled.

SpaceX revealed plans for an expanded network in a regulatory filing past year. According to Gwynne Shotwell, President of SpaceX, the firm has plans to increase launches between 30 to 40 missions in a year. The rocket's payload was a cherry-red 2008 Tesla Roadster electric auto with a mannequin wearing one of SpaceX's spacesuits. It is split into two halves, which separate down the middle.

The Falcon Heavy mission had a pretty precious payload - Musk's Roadster and its dummy passenger named Starman.

However, if SpaceX succeeds in turning StarLink into reality, the company will be putting over 4,000 satellites in orbit around Earth in the next five years.

SpaceX is slated to launch a rocket from a pad at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base at 6:17 a.m. local time on Wednesday. Since over 80% of rocket launch costs goes into building the rocket, reusing the boosters helps reduce the cost substantially. That represents nearly 10 percent of the $62 million list price for a standard Falcon 9 launch.

'We've got a special boat to catch the fairing, ' Musk said in a press conference following the Falcon Heavy launch. I think it might be able to do the same thing with Dragon, ' he added. CNN reported that a startup called, OneWeb, has already received approval from the FCC to send internet satellites into orbit. Let's see how they can do with other parts of the rocket!

For example, the total cost of a Falcon 9 launch is estimated to be about $61 million.

The company will soon be testing its first two satellites, Microsat 2A and 2B, which are headed for low-Earth orbit aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9.

Fairings protect satellites and other objects that are being delivered to space. Although SpaceX has not talked publicly about these fairings, they represent an upgrade over previous iterations, and the company will make an effort to recover them from the Pacific Ocean.
