You Can Watch SpaceX's Rocket Launches Live Right Here

  • Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Boeing and the French may all fly to space today

SpaceX said Tuesday's launch was scratched because of sensor readings on the rocket's first stage.

This satellite is nicknamed "Vespucci" after late 15th century and early 16th century Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci for which the Americas was named after. The company noted that it would target roughly the same launch window on Wednesday and then went quiet as they presumably got things in order.

The new GPS III satellite configuration was built to deliver better navigation, timing and accuracy to more than 4 billion GPS users around the world.

While the SpaceX and Blue Origin launches are on hold, two other missions that were also delayed on Tuesday will attempt to launch today. The launch window is from 9:11 to 9:37 Tuesday morning.

The proposed services - essentially a constellation of satellites that will bring high-speed Internet to rural and suburban locations globally - are key to generating the cash that SpaceX needs to fund Musk's real dream of developing a new rocket capable of flying customers to the moon and eventually trying to colonise Mars.

With massive F-35 increase, Japan is now biggest worldwide buyer
The five-year plan approved on Tuesday assumes record defence spending of 27.47 trillion yen ($244 billion) through to March 2024. The Defence Ministry says Japan plans to purchase 105 conventional F-35s and 42 F-35Bs to replace some of its fleet of F-15s.

SpaceX dropped the lawsuit in 2015 after the Air Force agreed to open up competition, according to SpaceX's website. "The U.S. Space Command will integrate space capabilities across all branches of the military, it will develop the space doctrine, tactics, techniques and procedures that will enable our war fighters to defend our nation in this new era". That is because India's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk. Its portfolio includes the Global Positioning System, military satellite communications, defense meteorological satellites, space launch, range systems, satellite control networks, space-based infrared systems, and space situational awareness capabilities.

Blue Origin expects its New Shepard rocket to lift off about 19 minutes later. And Arianespace said weather conditions forced it to delay a mission in French Guiana.

Of course, if the Delta IV Heavy scrubs on Tuesday evening, it likely would roll over 24 hours, so we still could have the potential for five launches in 24 hours. On the rocket is a classified satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office called NROL-71.

The launch marks SpaceX's first so-called National Security Space mission as defined by the USA military, SpaceX said.
