Hurricane Subtropical Nicole postpones SpaceX's takeoff
8 November (UPI) Due to worries about the recently developed Subtropical Storm Nicole, SpaceX has delayed its upcoming launch by at least four days.
From Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force station, the business had planned to launch its Galaxy 31 and Galaxy 32 satellites for the telecom company Intelsat on Tuesday.
No sooner than Saturday, November 12 is the new target date for the Falcon 9 launch of the Intelsat G-31/G-32 mission to orbit from SLC-40 [Space Launch Complex-40],
according to a tweet from SpaceX. Teams at the Cape are currently preparing for Tropical Storm Nicole.
After continuing to move northwest overnight and into Tuesday morning, Nicole is predicted to shift west-southwest on Wednesday and move close to or over the Bahamas.
The National Hurricane Center predicted that by Wednesday night, the storm will be approaching Florida's east coast.
