SpaceX successfully launched Falcon 9 into space, carrying Spacecom AMOS-17 satellite, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.


SpaceX will attempt to launch a Falcon 9 rocket Tuesday evening.

The mission will send an Israel communications satellite into space.

The launch was initially planned for Saturday, but it was rescheduled after crews detected a valve issue during testing.

The launch window opens at 7:23 p.m.
