SpaceX ready to resume launches from SLC-40
Posted: Sun, Dec 10, 2017, 7:36 AM ET (1236 GMT)
Falcon 9 v1.1 launch of CRS-6 (NASA/KSC) SpaceX returned Space Launch Complex 40 to service Wednesday with a successful static fire of the Falcon 9. The company said the test, a routine part of pre-launch preparations, clears the way for the launch of a Dragon spacecraft to the ISS on December 12. The test fire was the first on the pad since a September 2016 explosion during preparations for a similar static fire test that caused significant damage to the pad. SpaceX also announced Wednesday that the secretive Zuma mission, which was to launch last month but was delayed by a payload fairing concern, will now launch from SLC-40 next month.
