Rocket problem delays SpaceX launch of NASA water-watching satellite to Friday

SpaceX has postponed the launch of a NASA water-monitoring satellite to Friday (December 16) to allow more time to investigate a problem with its Falcon 9 rocket.

The SWOT (Surface Water and Ocean Topography) satellite was scheduled to lift off atop a Falcon 9 Thursday, Dec. 15 at 6:46 a.m. EST (11:46 GMT). But SpaceX is now aiming for a Friday launch, at this same early hour.
