CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX has successfully launched to orbit Falcon 9 with an Italian Earth-observation satellite.

The launch took place Monday at 6:11 p.m. at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, after four other launch attempts were scrubbed.

The first three attempts were scrubbed due to bad weather and the fourth because a ship wandered into the no-go zone downrange of Cape Canaveral.

Monday's launch was Falcon 9's fourth flight of the year.
