SpaceX tries again to launch space station

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX faces stormy skies for the second day in a row as it tries to launch a shipment of space station groceries.

The unmanned rocket is set to blast off at 4:10 p.m. Tuesday from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Forecasters put the weather odds at 60 percent.

The SpaceX capsule holds more than 4,000 pounds of supplies ordered up by NASA for the International Space Station, much of it food.

SpaceX, meanwhile, hopes to transform the rocket business by landing a leftover booster on an ocean platform. This will be the third try.
