GETTYSpaceX is set to launch another Falcon 9 rocket into space this morning

Using a previously flown "block 4" first stage and an upgraded block 5 second stage, the Falcon 9 was scheduled for liftoff from pad 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 12:29 a.m. EDT (GMT-4) Monday, the opening of a four-hour window.

But according to the SpaceX officials, this launch has been postponed to 4th June quoting the need to reexamine the Falcon 9 rocket and testing it further to secure safe hurling of the communications satellite SES-12.

The tourists would ride aboard a Dragon capsule, hoisted into space on SpaceX's most powerful rocket to date, the Falcon Heavy, which made its first test flight only 4 months ago.

Giuseppe Conte sworn in as Italian Prime Minister
Mr Conte was first appointed as prime minister-designate by President Mattarella to form a government on 23 May. The Russian government repeatedly has said it never meddled in the domestic affairs of European Union nations.

SpaceX's valuation has climbed to about $25 billion (€21 billion) with a new funding round, putting it on course to become the third-most valuable venture-backed startup in the U.S. after Uber Technologies and Airbnb.

"We believe there are around about a billion people in the Asia-Pacific market that still don't have good connectivity through the devices you're all holding in your hands right now", Hemingway told reporters last week. SES-12 will join SES' network of seven geostationary satellites and 16 MEO satellites across Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. "And satellite is one, and sometimes the only, way to connect 2G, 3G and 4G to those markets". After extensive tests and checkout, the spacecraft is expected to enter operational service early next year.

This is part of SpaceX's wider goal to make launching rockets similar to commercial flights, where they "can be flown again and again". The initial Falcon 9 Block 5 was launched in the month of May.
