SpaceX delays launch until Monday morning

- Aerospace company SpaceX scrubbed the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket for 24 hours after a sensor detected a problem in the first stage booster.

The decision to scrub the launch happened with just 52 seconds remaining before the scheduled 7 a.m. blast off of a classified satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office.

SpaceX will spend the rest of the day examining the issue. The company is hoping to launch the rocket during its back-up opportunity at 7 a.m. on Monday.
