BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to launch the Thaicom 8 communications satellite from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station has been scrubbed. SpaceX engineers will attempt to launch within the next 24 hours.

Thaicom 8 will provide Ku-band broadcast and data services to Thailand, Southeast Asia, India and Africa.

The launch was moved forward from June.

The rocket will be carrying a communications satellite that weighs nearly 7,000 lbs.

SpaceX will try to attempt to land the first stage of the rocket on a drone ship in the Atlantic, once again.

The weather for Thursday’s launch is looking good, according to experts.

SpaceX will attempt to land another rocket successfully on a ocean barge.
