CAPE CANERVAL, Fla. (WFLA) – SpaceX scrubbed a rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center for the second time Monday evening.

It came after a scrub on Sunday evening due to a technical issue. Monday’s mission was aborted at T-minus 10 seconds, where crews routinely check data on the vehicle.

As of right now, it is unknown what caused the scrub.

The launch will be attempted tomorrow.

For more information, you can follow along on the SpaceX social media accounts.

The rocket is carrying a communication satellite for parts of the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
