SpaceX completes second static fire on new Falcon 9

For the second time in a week, SpaceX's upgraded Falcon 9 rocket fired its engines on a new California launch pad Thursday in one of the final steps before the 22-story launcher is cleared for liftoff on a test flight no earlier than Sept. 29.

The slender two-stage rocket, towering more than 220 feet over its hillside launch complex, ignited its engines Thursday afternoon at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The brief engine firing, known as a "static fire" in SpaceX parlance, includes an ignition and burn of the rocket's nine first stage engines for several seconds while the launcher is held on the launch pad by restraints.
