Central Coast Rocket Launch Set For Monday Morning After Three Postponements

Dec 2, 2018

Could the fourth try be a winner?

SpaceX is hoping to launch one of its rockets from the Central Coast Monday morning after three delays. The company’s Falcon 9 rocket has a unique payload of more than 60 small satellites. Among them is a satellite containing ashes from more than 100 people who dreamed about sometime making it into space.

The launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base was initially delayed so ground crews would have more time to double check launch preparations. A second launch effort was scrubbed due to strong upper level winds.

Then, a third launch effort planned for Sunday was postponed due to efforts to double check the booster. The new flight window opens at 10:32 Monday morning.
