The much expected "SpaceX" re-launch is scheduled for January as a number of satellites will be taken to space by SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It was already confirmed by Elon Musk in a news interview that he would continue with the efforts of SpaceX, though the Falcon explosion made a temporary halt in its missions.

The explosion of Falcon 9 rocket explosion in the launch pad on Sep. 1, was a setback for the space science firm. Interestingly, the re-launch was scheduled for mid of December, but now news reports confirm a move to January. Now, it seems that SpaceX is in a sense of urgency as there are almost 70 satellites that needs to be launched into space since it was scheduled even before the explosion of Falcon 9.

It is reported that SpaceX will carry the satellites of Iridium Communications in the re-launch. It is reported that the Iridium CEO is confident with the Falcon 9 rockets of SpaceX for the launch of its satellites. The SpaceX team had confirmed in November that the explosion was due to the liquid oxygen, which uses in the second stage of combustion. It froze and led to the explosion.

The clients of SpaceX include NASA and other commercial firms that work on telecommunication, research etc. But, there were few setbacks also reported for the commercial launches due to the withdrawal of the contract with Inmarsat, a British satellite company. Inmarsat's satellites were scheduled to launch by the end of 2016, but as the SpaceX can only resume services by 2017, the firm decided to cancel the contract.

The SpaceX re-launch news gets a big attention due to Elon Musk and his ability to make wonders with technology. Everyone is sure that he can come back from the explosion debacle he faced. But, it looks like he is moving things hurriedly to prove that everything is normal. Elon Musk carries the hope of millions of people for a better tomorrow, so he couldn't afford to end up with further troubles.
