SpaceX postpones launch of SES TV satellite

www.bbc.co.uk said:

The US SpaceX company had to postpone its latest launch of a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral on Monday.

It was trying to put a 3.1-tonne TV satellite in orbit for the Luxembourg-based operator SES.

Three attempts were made to get the Falcon off the ground in the allotted 65-minute window, but on each occasion controllers were thwarted by a glitch.
