SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch Dec 21st


SpaceX is targeting a launch of its Falcon 9 rocket for Monday night at 8:33 PM.  This would be the first launch of a Falcon 9 since last June’s mishap, when the rocket exploded shortly after lift-off.  This may also be the first time that SpaceX attempts to land the 14-story-tall rocket booster back on land.  Expect a sonic boom about 10 minutes after lift-off if all goes as planned as the booster returns to Earth.  WFIT’s Rick Glasby files this video report.
