FLORIDA -

Space Exploration Technologies, also known as SpaceX, plans to try launching its first commercial communications satellite again Tuesday.

The communications satellite launch was pushed back twice after technical issues with the rocket.

The company decided to skip a launch attempt Monday to allow more time to re-check the rocket following a last-second abort last Thursday.

The launch is scheduled for 5:41 p.m. from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
