BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX announced that the Falcon 9 rocket launch from Cape Canaveral carrying the Hispasat 30W-6 communications satellite is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6, after a stand down order was given this past weekend for the launch due to testing on the fairing’s pressurization system.
