Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, on Saturday delayed the planned launch of a Falcon 9 rocket carrying six communications satellites after cloudy skies socked in its Florida launch site. The rocket carries six small satellites for Orbcomm Inc, a provider of machine-to-machine data and messaging services worldwide.
Today’s Orbcomm launch attempt has been scrubbed due to weather.

The privately owned company had rescheduled launch for Saturday after encountering a technical problem minutes before a launch attempt on Friday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. A spokeswoman for Orbcomm said in an email that the next launch attempt would be 5:30 p.m. EDT (21.30 GMT) on Sunday.
