WATCH: SpaceX successfully launches Transporter-2 mission, landing Falcon 9 booster at Cape Canaveral



TAMPA, Florida. (WFLA) – The second time was the charm for SpaceX. The company successfully launched its Transporter-2 mission from the Florida coast on Wednesday after a plane in the area forced the company to rub off its first attempt.

Transporter-2 was just about 11 seconds away from Cape Canaveral on Tuesday afternoon when SpaceX quickly rubbed the launch. Founder and CEO Elon Musk later tweeted that it was due to a plane to “hold out the area.”

“There is no way that humanity can become a space civilization without major regulatory reform,” he said, voicing his frustration on Twitter after the rub. “The current regulatory system is broken.”

The company made another attempt on Wednesday afternoon and successfully launched the mission on a Falcon 9 rocket.

Mission Transporter-2 is SpaceX’s second dedicated SmallSat Rideshare Program mission. This mission will send 85 commercial and government spacecraft into orbit, including CubeSats, microsats and orbital transfer machines. Three Starlink satellites will also be on board.
