Prior to the cancellation, the Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled for liftoff at 10.32am PST on Sunday from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The launch was delayed multiple times due to inclement weather and to conduct more inspections before takeoff. Falcon 9 and its crowded payload were supposed to take flight on November 19, but SpaceX delayed the SmallSat Express mission to conduct additional tests.

South Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology also confirmed that the launch of their new satellite, which, among other cargo, is expected to be sent to orbit by Falcon 9 launch vehicle, was postponed.

Tommy Lee responds to claims stating he ripped off Travis Barker
As Complex points out , however, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker employed the 360 loop design in a tour before either Lee or Scott in 2009.

Provided the launch is successful, the Falcon 9 will try to land on a drone ship in the Pacific Ocean. Previous Falcon 9 stages had to retire after two flights, yet Monday's Falcon 9 booster is going for its third space journey.

The mission is billed as the "largest dedicated rideshare mission on a USA launch vehicle".

Talk about ride-sharing. The 64 satellites were launched from 34 organizations and was one of the largest satellite ride-sharing missions ever launched, and the most crowded single mission in USA history, according to Spaceflight, SpaceX's customer for the launch.

Dutch court rejects man's request to be recognised as 20 years younger
He argued: "You can be born as a small girl and as attractive as you are you could say 'I feel like a man I want to have a dick". Ratelband, 69, asked the court in Arnhem : "We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender".

Some of the satellites are aiming to build an internet network that could support smart devices. No SpaceX rocket has ever flown more than twice.

"Most of the start-ups are planning to eventually have constellations of between 60 and 100 satellites", Wired reported. As SpaceX's reusability engineers and technicians begin to gain confidence with how Falcon 9's Block 5 upgrade behaves after multiple launches and landings, the time needed between flight-proven launches of the same booster should continue to rapidly decrease over the next 6-12 months.
