SpaceX plans to launch another SiriusXM satellite Sunday

ORLANDO, Fla., June 4 (UPI) -- Elon Musk's SpaceX plans to launch a communications satellite for SiriusXM on Sunday from Florida in what will be the first such mission since one of the broadcast company's spacecraft failed after launch in December.


The satellite, known as SXM-8, is prepared for liftoff aboard a Falcon 9 rocket during a nearly two-hour window starting at 12:25 a.m. EDT from Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.





Weather risks at that time include showers and cumulus clouds, according to a forecast from the Space Force, which determined a 40% chance of weather-related postponement. SpaceX may attempt a launch around the same time Monday if weather causes a delay.


The satellite is intended to aid the delivery of Sirius XM's entertainment and data services to 34 million subscribers, according to the company.
