BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX launch team has scrubbed Thursday’s Falcon 9 rocket launch from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and pushed it back to Friday night.

SpaceX cited there was ‘unfavorable weather’ in the area.

The launch is targeted for 6:11 p.m. ET.

Weather conditions are 70-percent favorable for Thursday’s rocket launch with the primary concern being the Cumulus Cloud Rule and strong winds near the time of liftoff.

The rocket will carry the second COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation, or CSG 2, radar surveillance satellite for ASI, the Italian space agency.

Following first-stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to recover the booster engine on  a drone ship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
