SpaceX Delays Launch
Torrance-based SpaceX, the commercial rocket firm run by Elon Musk, has delayed its February launch flight to the International Space Station. According to the firm, the move comes as it addresses engineering tests on the firm's Dragon capsule. A new launch date has not been set. SpaceX had originally scheduled to launch its Falcon rocket and Dragon capsule to the International Space Station (ISS) on February 7th, in what would have been the first docking of a commercially developed spacecraft with the ISS.
