A SpaceX rocket carrying a U.S. military navigation satellite blasted off from Florida's Cape Canaveral on Sunday, marking the space transportation company's first national security space mission for the United States. The Falcon 9 rocket carrying a roughly $500 million GPS satellite built by Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) lifted off from Cape Canaveral at 8:51 a.m. local time (1351 GMT). Four previous scheduled launches in the last week, including one on Saturday, were cancelled due to weather and technical issues. The successful launch is a significant victory for billionaire Elon Musk's privately held rocket company, which has spent years trying to break into the lucrative market for military space launches dominated by Lockheed and Boeing Co (BA.N). SpaceX sued the U.S. Air Force in 2014 over the military's award of a multibillion-dollar, non-compete contract for 36 rocket launches to United Launch Alliance, a partnership of Boeing and Lockheed.

Billionaire Elon Musk's SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to blast off on Thursday after 2 cancelled launches earlier this week due to last-minute technical problems, but poor weather is looming as a potential problem. The rocket will carry a roughly $500 million global positioning system (GPS) satellite built by Lockheed Martin Corp and is due to take off from Florida's Cape Canaveral shortly after 9 a.m. local time (1400 GMT). Weather will be a challenge on Thursday morning, with only a 20 percent chance of favorable conditions because severe thunderstorms and wind gusts are predicted for south and central Florida's so-called Space Coast on Thursday, said Patrick Burke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. "It's almost a near certainty that Cape Canaveral will get thunderstorms in the morning, with some severe winds," Burke said. "A cold front bringing the rain is moving in from off shore." Burke said the weather … [Read more...] about News SpaceX to try again to launch U.S. satellite in first national security mission
