SpaceX delays launch of NASA’s SWOT satellite to Friday

Date:

SpaceX has postponed the launch of a NASA water monitoring satellite to Friday (Dec. 16) to allow more time to investigate a problem with its Falcon 9 rocket.

The SWOT (Surface Water and Ocean Topography) satellite was scheduled to lift off atop a Falcon 9 at 6:46 a.m. EST (1146 GMT) Thursday (Dec. 15). But SpaceX is now targeting a Friday launch, at that same early hour.
