SPACE reports that SpaceX called off Friday’s scheduled launch of the SES-12 communications satellite aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, “citing the need for extra tests on the booster’s upper stage.” The previously flown Falcon 9 was scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 12:29 a.m. EDT, but SpaceX is now “working toward a June 4 launch,” according to a company tweet. SES-12 was built by Airbus Defence and Space for Luxembourg telecom SES, and is “designed to provide direct-to-home video and data services to SES customers across the Asia-Pacific region.” (Image Credit: NASA)
