SpaceX rocket to launch for first time since September blast

The American SpaceX rocket company is set to fly again.

It’s preparing to launch a Falcon 9 vehicle from California on Saturday.

The test is the first since a launchpad explosion in September grounded operations.

It’s seen as crucial to see whether Elon Musk’s company has identified and corrected the cause of the accident.
