SpaceX plans to return to outer space in November, just three months after one of its rockets was destroyed in an explosion on September 1.
The company won't comment on any launch plans, but a source familiar with its plans says November is the current target for its next flight.
SpaceX has a history of relatively quick turnarounds after setbacks. After one of its rockets exploded shortly after takeoff in June 2015, it successfully launched another rocket in just less than six months. It can often take a year or more for a company or space agency to resume flights after a rocket explosion.
But it took less than a month for SpaceX to determine the cause of the June 2015 blast, which proved to be a strut inside the rocket. This time, the company is still searching for answers. It's even asked members of the public to share any video they may have of the explosion.
