SpaceX has said that it plans to return to launching Falcon 9 rockets in early January, just four months after a mission exploded on the launchpad.
The rocket startup said in a statement that it was wrapping up its investigation into the incident on Sept. 1 and were giving themselves until January to make the changes necessary to get the Falcon 9 back off the ground.
The next launch is for ten Iridium telecoms satellites, a big payload for SpaceX in more ways than one, and the firm will want to ensure that all systems are go for the mission. These are the first of 72 satellites that Iridium and SpaceX are sending into space together, completely replacing the company’s satellite constellation in a $492 million contract.
