The SpaceX launch of commercial satellites, originally scheduled for 10 May, is now targeted for 11 June from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. SpaceX delayed the planned 10 May launch when the company discovered unspecified issues the day before, while fueling the Falcon 9 for a test-firing of its engines. The static fire test is expected to be take place again two or three days before the new launch date. The Falcon 9 will attempt to place six satellites in low Earth orbit for Orbcomm Inc. The mission is the first of two planned for this year to deploy 17 Orbcomm Generation 2 spacecraft. (Image Credit: Wikipedia / Ken Thornsley, NASA)
