This drove users to look for more news regarding the area which includes the weather. Local notices indicate that it will happen on Monday because weather reports suggest wind speeds of nearly 17 mph this Sunday and nine mph on Monday.
Local news further guaranteed that it may happen on Monday. A local news paper has published official notices that boaters and pilots of the upcoming launch has been moved to Monday instead of Sunday, as reported by the San Luis Obispo Tribune. There is no official time for the launch. The Sunday launch was meant to happen at 10:28 A.M, according to the publication.
Elon Musk and SpaceX followers continue to scour the internet for more information and hold their breaths. Because the Falcon 9 launch is a big deal. The rocket is going to carry 10 Iridium Next Satellites to start a new satellite phone system. After the September explosion, many hope that this launch will be successful.
