A faulty sensor in a Falcon 9 rocket's second stage has to be replaced, so SpaceX has delayed it's next launch to Wednesday.
The rocket was intended to fly Tuesday at 4:25 p.m. EST, but gusting winds at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station launch pad were threatening enough to delay the launch until at least 5:30 p.m., with the hope the winds would calm.
But then the launch team scrubbed the attempt when it became apparent a hardware fix was necessary.
It is not known at the moment if this delay will have a ripple effect and delay the targeted debut launch of the Falcon Heavy from Kennedy Space Center next week on Feb. 6.
