Hawthorne’s SpaceX Will Attempt Cargo Run To International Space Station Tuesday

HAWTHORNE (CBS) — SpaceX will attempt to become the first private company to send a rocket to the International Space Station early Tuesday morning.

The Hawthorne-based company attempted a launch on Saturday, but the mission was aborted due to high engine pressure.

The company says it has now fixed a faulty valve inside the rocket, which is carrying supplies for the station.

The next launch is scheduled for 3:44 a.m. in Florida.
