Launch of SpaceX Falcon rocket

SpaceX will try to launch again for its re-supply mission to the International Space Station.

The first attempt on Saturday was thwarted by a faulty valve in one of the engines on the California company's Falcon 9 rocket.

The lift-off at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida was aborted just half a second before the vehicle was due to leave the pad.

SpaceX is endeavouring to become the first commercial concern to carry cargo to the International Space Station.
