TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — SpaceX scrubbed the launch of its Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Friday afternoon.
The launch window was initially set for 11:21 a.m., however, was rescheduled a couple of times before being scrubbed around 12:50 p.m. The SpaceX team was monitoring upper-level winds.
SpaceX announced via Twitter crews stood down from the launch to perform additional ground system checkouts and are hoping for another launch attempt no earlier than Sunday.
The rocket is set to carry the SXM 7, a large radio broadcasting satellite for SiriusXM.
